Olympic Peninsula Fly Fishing ReportUpdated September 2nd
OVERVIEW -The lower Sol Duc and Hoh and Queets are the only bigger river options around Forks.
BOGACHIEL / CALAWAH
Closed until Nov 16th 2016
Open! The rain and cooler weather will make the Hoh a good option.
Another good option and generally less people around.
Still closed to all fishing but the river is finally FREE! With both dams completely removed, fish recovery is really taking off. There have a pretty fair number of steelhead spawning in the middle river this spring. All checked there have been wild and it seems the brood stock raised hatchery fish have all remained in the lower river.
Opened June 1st. Fishing well so far this year and hearing lots of good reports from both fly fishermen and the guys trolling gear. Our guide trips have had success throwing streamers and baitfish patterns along the shorelines and fishing long, deep sunk lines.
Some are starting to warm up to where the trout fishing has slowed a lot, but the bass have become quite active in lakes like Ludlow and Leland.
So many high lakes and so little time to get up there. The park is encouraging us to take all of the brook trout, so if you want a good trout dinner these are the guys to eat. Two solid months left, but it ends soon.
Been hearing more good reports about searun cut fishing than in recent years. Sequim Bay has been good and even the limited beach fishing around Port Angeles has been decent.
