The Bogachiel River, Sol-Duc River, Hoh River and Calawah River offer fantastic sport for fly anglers. There are also numerous alternative streams in this region and outstanding Salt Water Fly Fishing opportunities abound during the Summer months. Available to our fly anglers on a seasonal basis are Wild Steelhead in excess of 20 lbs, King Salmon over 50 lbs, Silver / Coho Salmon over 15 lbs and mighty but minnie Sockeye Salmon from 3-5 lbs. Sea-Run Cutthroat Trout and Dolley Varden Char are also very abundant throughout the Summer and Fall. Many of these species can be caught in the same day especially during July, August, September and October.

Each one of our regions rivers are unique and distinct in their character and offer a variety of excellent fly fishing water for all fly fisherpersons from the absolute beginner to the most experienced veteran. For instance, on rivers such as the HOH there is plenty of back-casting room and numerous easily wadeable gravel bar protrusion along the banks while on rivers such as the Sol Duc and Calawah we do the majority of the days fly fishing from a boat due to bank brush. Many anglers opt to fly fish with two-handed (Spey) rods on the later two rivers.

Fishing styles depend upon the customer's wishes ... casting dry fly's, skaters or wakers for Cutthroat and Steelhead, twitch'n "buggers" on sink tips or swinging attractor patterns and tube fly's on heavier sink-tips for Steelhead and Salmon from the gravel bars or nymphing with sink-tips or dry lines from the boat as we prospect the holding pockets while floating our way downstream between the "hot spots" are just a few of the many techniques we effectively employ.

If you would like to bring your own equipment I would recommend the following: For the Cutthroat and Dolley Varden Char as well as the smaller summer run Steelhead and Sockeye Salmon a quality 6-7 weight, 9'-10' long rod with both a dry line and sink tip line (set up with a 90 - 120 grain tip) is perfect. For the larger Fall King and Silver Salmon and winter Steelhead an 8wt, 8 1/2' rod is about as light as you would want to go to be fair to the fish and the fisherman, we can and do fish with lighter stuff for the big bruisers but only if the angler is extremely experienced.

Ideally you should have one 6-7 wt dry line outfit with inter- changeable sink tips and one 8-10wt outfit with a variety of medium to heavy sinking tip sections (type II-VI). If you prefer to use a Spey Rod I will leave the choices up to you. Two handed rods are special pieces of equipment and what is "best" is best left to the discretion of the angler.
