Salsbury Point Fishing:

Salsbury point is a fairly well-known bank fishing spot for Salmon in Kitsap County area. Although Salsbury is one of the better Coho fisheries in the state, you may still catch the occasional King or Pink. Silvers feed here until they make they begin their final journey to the spawning grounds. These fish tend to be very aggressive and it’s not uncommon to have multiple hookups when the school swims by. Herring is the most productive bait to use, but Anglers can have success with Brads,  buzz bombs and spinners when the fish are feeding. The love to cut plug or whole herring. Best time to be there is during the early morning bit from the crack of dawn until about 4 hours after sun up. The evening bit is generally not as productive but best times are about 4 hours before sundown until dark. High tides are fruitful as well.  Salsbury Point fishing access is on park grounds only. Be sure not to trespass on the adjoining private property, if the local sheriff catches you wondering to far off park grounds, he has no problems dishing out fines.
