Olympic Peninsula Fly Fishing Report – 6/3/15


We have been catching some late winter steelhead, early summer coho, big dollies, and sea run cutthroat recently. The dollie in the picture about spooled us, we had to chase it with the boat. Throughout May, the Spring Chinook have been the primary target on the OP. A few have been caught on the swing, but gear and bait is the way to consistently catch them. The Bogachiel, Calawah, Queets, and Upper Quinault open this week. There should be summer steelhead in the Bogachiel and Calawah on the June 6 opener. The Hoh looks great, but it isn’t going to open until August 1 at the earliest.  

Olympic Peninsula Fly Fishing Report – 3/17/15


We got some rain and the fish came with it. We have had some insane fishing over the past week. There have been a lot more nice fish coming to the net. Marlon and Robert came out and we had very high water conditions, I gave them the option to cancel their trip because the water was so high. They said they came to fish and if there was a chance of catching one we should go. With low expectations we put the boat in and Marlon found this magnum buck, in the mid-20 pound range. Then we hooked quite a few more. It was an awesome day, much better than expected.  

Olympic Peninsula Fly Fishing Report – 3/9/15


The water has been getting low and we could sure use some rain. We haven’t been putting up big numbers in the low water, but we have been hooking enough fish every day. Bob and Keith came up from CA and had a great trip. The weather was warm and dry and we found some nice fish. Then Norm and Pam came out from the East Coast. Norm has done a lot of steelheading, but this was Pam’s first trip. Maybe it was beginners luck, but she caught some big steelhead. Overall, fishing has been slower lately than it was in February with the low water we have been having, but there are still plenty of steelhead in the rivers on the OP. It should be really good fishing after the next big rain.  

Olympic Peninsula Fly Fishing Report – 2/27/15


The rivers are on the drop, we haven’t had any rain for a while now. Fishing has continued to be really good. Over the last week we have seen some awesome fish. Ben came out and caught a huge upper teen’er buck in the same slot that is brother caught a huge one in late January. We landed that fish and got a picture within 20′ of where we landed his brothers steelhead a few weeks before. It was awesome. Doug and Jim came up from CA again this year and found some more great steelhead. Fishing has been good and the Hoh and Queets are in shape. It is a great time to be on the Olympic Peninsula.  

Olympic Peninsula Steelhead – More Steelhead after the Big Rain


2/17/15 – After the rain let up, the rivers dropped right back into shape. There have been a lot of steelhead around. We spent the weekend at the Lynwood Fly Fishing Show. The turnout was great to our presentations, Olympic Peninsula Steelhead – Where they live and how to catch them. Next year we will be attending the show again and giving presentations on the OP. Here are a few pictures from the past week, there have been some nice steelhead coming to the net.  

Great Start to the 2015 Steelhead Season – 2/10/15


This January was great fishing. I had multiple days already this season that were better than any day last year and the peak of the season is not here yet. The last blow out brought a big push of steelhead into the OP Rivers and we are coming off another huge blowout. If you are interested in hooking into a few of these awesome fish, we have some dates available: Feb 22, 28, March 4-6, 8, 15, 22, 29, and quite a few dates in April. Here are some pics from the past few weeks.  

More Rain & Wild Steelhead


Well, the rain is pouring once again and there are some awesome wild fish in the rivers right now. We got these and a few others yesterday on the rise. After this next drop fishing should be good. It has been a wet few months. Yesterday the Hoh was flowing at 1,500 CFS and now it is at 23,700 CFS and just peaked. That should get some of that wood moving around, it might wash out some of those sweepers in the upper river. There have been some big wild fish getting caught. I am looking forward to getting back on the rivers when they are falling, fishing was good on the rise. I still have some dates open for the winter season, here is what I have open in January: 18, 19, 28, 31. There are still some prime openings in February, March, and April. Call or email and I will let you know

Klickitat River Fly Fishing - Fall King Salmon - Chinook

Klickitat River Fly Fishing Report – 10/5/14


There have been a lot of chinook and steelhead in the Klickitat lately. Norm and Jimmy came out from Pennsylvania for five days and had an epic trip. They were really out for the Fall chinook, but after their arms got tired of pulling on 15-30lb chinook they were glad that there were plenty of steelhead around. The weather was not quite salmon or steelhead weather, 60-80 degrees with bright sun. One morning we saw a black bear across the river. It just hung out for about 10 minutes, looking in the water and pacing up and down the bank. We were able to get some great pictures with the low light just coming over the canyon walls behind the bear. The amount of angling pressure on the Klickitat is more every year. But, there are a lot of fish in the system.

Olympic Peninsula Steelhead Fly Fishing Report – 3/9/14


The water has been really high for the month of March and early February was more of a drought. It is getting ready to come off the big blow out. We are looking forward to more big chromers coming in with this high water. Fishing has been pretty good since January. We have been finding them here and there with the random double digit day. We have been seeing a lot of 3 salt fish this year. For dates still available, we have openings in the April 16-30 range.
