I am a local Olympic Peninsula Resident and Guide offering fully Guided Hatchery and Trophy Wild Steelhead Trips these trips will be out my new 14' NRS raft with standing platforms, thigh hooks for secure standing and a dry box to keep personal items in if needed or my 16ft heated Lavro Drift Boat with 2 dry storage compartments to keep your personal items dry if its raining. All gear is included all you need to bring is a lunch and a valid fishing license. This is the time of the year where we see the most action so it is great time to get into fishing, bring your kids, bring home a loaded cooler full of rich fresh salmon and enjoy a beautiful scenic tour of the Olympic Peninsula. I will also provide high quality photography and clean/fillet your harvested fish after we are finished. If you have any questions about what you need to bring or what the day is going to consists of please conact me anytime!
Many of these trips have the option of fishing different rivers if you were to book a multi-day trip so you have something new to look forward to the next day!
(open to fly fishing and center pin fishing if you'd like)
Hatchery Steelhead- (December- Mid January) Great time put a lot of steelhead in the freezer due to our 3 fish limit per person. Very hands on fishing, casting bobbers and floating through holes and runs. But can be very laid back fishing too if your wanting to sit back and wait for the back trolling rod to go off while your drinking coffee or a beer in front of a heater!
Trophy Wild Steelhead- ( January- May) This is my favorite time to fish due to the style of fishing I do to target these fish. We float long stretches of river up to 16 miles in a day. So you get to see lots of river, animals and senic veiws of our rain forests while going through class 2 - class 4 rapids. This is the time to catch a steelhead of a lifetime from 20-30 pounds too. Lots of casting into pockets while we're going through rapids. Also a fishery where all we can do is back troll too if your looking to relax and wait for the rod to bend over!
