Spend a day with a Waters West guide learning the ins and outs of trout fishing on the West End Rivers.

Olympic Peninsula Sea-run cutthroat are a unique trout, just like the West End Rivers they inhabit. To catch these "Cutties" we do things a little differently on the Olympic Peninsula.

Cut down on that learning curve and get to catching fish! The purpose of the this class is to get you effectively fishing for these extraordinary trout in and bout the West End rivers.

(* We recommend having a little bit of casting and fishing experience * if your a beginner, see Trout 101 Classes)

You'll learn

  • dry fly and streamer techniques
  • Flyline/leader/fly-rigging
  • Reading water/identifying holding water and feeding lanes
  • Correct presentations that work for sea-run cutthroat as well as resident trout.

Just in time too! Fall is prime-time for sea-run Cutt's so you can take this class and be practiced and ready for the season before you have time to forget it all!
