It can be the same (give or take) as Nisqually. On good days, there's a bit of pressure and as long as you watch the tides you'll have a chance at a few birds. Wait until the weather turns if you ask me - that's when I'll be out there and if happy to have you fill a seat in the boat if you want to check it out some time.

It's just like everywhere else, if you have a private land hookup it is stellar, if you hunt public, you just won't know until you try. I've had good shoots up there and I've left without firing a shot but the swan watching is almost always good. :biggrin:

Follow the Skagit and Samish away from the bay. You will find ducks. Or join the circus at Samish unit. A lot of good hunting up the skagit. As birds follow it.
There is good hunting as far up as Finney creek. But you need a jet up there. The islands in Lyman are good later in the year.

No he has it wrong. Birds are only EAST of I-5. The puddle ducks are scared of the Salt water and water within 5 miles of it. So my advice is stick to the East of 5 area. As long as your remember that your hunts will be good!
