Description

Once attracting about as many participants as the combined attendance of Seattle's three major league teams, salmon fishing was Washington's first major league sport. In past years this state's catch exceeded the combined sport salmon catches of California, Oregon, British Columbia and Alaska. Since then, Washington anglers often choose to travel to British Columbia or Alaska to catch salmon many of which originate in Washington!

In Washington's Sport of Kings the development of salmon angling in Washington's marine waters is documented from its ancient origins, through the Puget Sound resort and boathouse era, heydays on the outer coast, to the present. Early salmon derbies and associated scandals, a knock-down fist fight between a prominent tribal member and a top State fish cop, and a Governor caught using a state-owned boat for his private yacht, are among the many factual vignettes.
