Fishing Frenzy

Botanical Gardens

Some of the best salmon fishing in Washington can be found in the waters near the mouth of Kingston’s harbor. The underwater terrain near the harbor creates an area where Chinook and coho like to gather on both sides of the tide. There is plenty of food there, so salmon can hang out all summer. A natural sand bar that runs north along the peninsula collects the food and provides space for the salmon to congregate.

Home to dozens of species of plants from all over the world, the Heronswood Botanical Gardens are a must visit for anyone with a green thumb or simply looking for a quiet place to relax for the day. With plants native to China, Vietnam, Myanmar, Tasmania, and Chile to name a few, visitors are sure to come upon new and unique plants they’ve never seen before.

“Fishing can be good on either a high or low tide, but is often the most productive just before low tide change. Trolling lures such as Coyote spoons, Coho Killers, or a plastic squid trailed behind a dodger works best,” adds Mark Yuasa, Director of the Northwest Salmon Derby Series. Both downrigger trolling and mooching are popular methods of fishing in this stretch of water. Trolling works best moving north from Kingston up the peninsula during an outgoing tide, and south during an incoming tide. Hatchery Chinook season is open July 25 through August 31, while coho season opens in early June and goes until mid-July. Check wdfw.gov for regulations.

The garden was founded in 1987 and passed through several owners until it was purchased by the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe at auction in 2012. A new garden was planted since then, paying homage to the original garden while adding to the unique vision. Heronswood consists of winding paths through woodland beds, a potager with fountain, a carpinus hedge, and small ponds. Stone columns and other stone features are positioned around the grounds. Drop by for a class on practical botany or identifying the native plants of the Northwest. Several times throughout the year, Heronswood sells the products of their botanical efforts during plant sales. Guided tours for large groups are available. The garden is open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 1000 hours to 1500 hours.
