I'm going to sound like a newb but do coho run this time of year?  I've only done winter fishing a few times before and that was for winter BM.  I thought coho ran mostly during mid August-late October?

It’s not that they are running as in coming back from the ocean to go upstream and spawn. Some may stay in the sound which is what the black mouth are doing out there.

Mustang- Areas 8-1, 8-2 and 9: ONE hatchery chinook (blackmouth) only.  Here's the detail of the special rules.  Note that in Area 10 2 blackmouth can be kept, but nothing with an adipose fin.

"anglers will have a daily limit of one salmon, but must release wild chinook and coho.

Marine areas 7 (San Juan Islands), 10 (Seattle/Bremerton), and 11 (Tacoma-Vashon Island) remain open for salmon fishing in February. Anglers fishing in Marine Area 10 can now keep two hatchery chinook, but must release wild"

Called "resident coho" by locals - yes they stay in the Puget Sound vs. migrating to the Pacific.  Same for the Chinook "Blackmouth" which the majority are actually raised at the hatcheries (although some wild stay as resident as well) with the winter fishing in mind.  The chinook programed for winter fishing are kept at the hatchery until larger befor release.  These "Blackmouth" account a large percentage of the sublegal/shakers that you catch during the summer and fall fishing.
