Anybody willing to share a beach location near Shelton?
I would say go to South Sound or Hood Canal. Should be about as good as it gets either way.
I've fished at a number park beaches around that area. Good luck.
There is an access right near Johns Creek off Hwy 3. It is on Oakland Bay and is a chum spot but some searuns should be around.
Go fish Purdy with the FOURTEEN other guys I counted while driving over the bridge today (this is not an exaggeration). I was heading from one spot to another and that just happened to be the quickest route. I knew there was a reason I have never hit that beach since I started fishing SRC. We can be an unoriginal bunch, can’t we. Hundreds of miles of shoreline and 80% of the saltwater guys out today were fishing the same beach. I hope there was a club outing or something going on. What a cluster that looks to be. I barely put up with that sh*t for coho in the fall...
As others have said, check out state, county and city county parks on the water in that area. Lots of spots to check out. If you can get access to the water...fish it.
Try south Puget Sound or North Puget Sound. Middle is good too.
Pretty sure much of the Purdy crowd is guide traffic. I'm happy for them to keep clients there and off other spots

Just had a really fun hour of fishing in 8-2. 6 rezzies in the net with one hard-fighting wild fish among them. So yeah, head north or stay south and I’d suggest the sound unless you wanna hit the canal. Find a beach and get some!
The saltwater here has some fish in it.
I hope your right. If I had half a brain....and was guided to that spot, I would want my money back. You can’t find f$cking Purdy by yourself and figure it out? Stay home and play XBox.
I’d take 25 skunkings in a row exploring less crowded water than fish for SRC in that mess.
To each their own I guess.....
It’s been rumored the cutts at Purdy know everyone’s names.
The Port of Purdy is considering putting in parking meters because the place has become so popular.
They view the beach pounding as a untapped source of revenue.
After the meters go in, next comes the beach angler carbon tax.
Totally agreed. I can't believe guides would be taking their customers there.
Kinda like a sea plane trip to Flagler
It was probably better then burfoot this am it was vacant of fish and people and the gate didnt open till 8o entrance gate was locked walked in anyway
I went to a popular Seattle beach this am to give a new line a few casts before heading south to meet the wife's parents, and ran into two dudes frustrated and dismayed by the lack of action on said beach. They were new, and I had no qualms about pointing them to Purdy. Whatever else it is, it's productive and a good place for a noob to pop his cherry.
Maybe you guys are just jealous that their flat bills, puffy's and go pros look prettier than yours.
