Chico Creek Fishing:
Chico creek is located in Kitsap county and offers Washington anglers some great salmon Fishing opportunities. Both Coho and Chum spawn in this little creek but there are a few important things to know. The first is that anglers are not allowed to actually fish in Chico creek because it is closed to all fishing. However, do not despair! although you will need a salt water fishing license, the mouth is opened to salmon fishing. Boundaries to the allowed fishing access area are clearly marked. Do not! I repeat do not! fish in the restricted area. WDFW game wardens frequent this location often and I have seen then readily ticket fisherman.
