Springers, as they are nicknamed, are undoubtedly the most explosive fish to encounter in the Northwest rivers. With their uncanny ways of twisting and spinning around like a top, they will challenge the skills of any experienced angler. We fish light tackle, using only the best gear available. Our terminal tackle is: 8-10 ft. Loomis rods, Shimano and Ambassedeur high speed reels. This fish of a lifetime can peel off fifty to eighty yards of line in seconds. It pays to have the right equipment.

In my 29 years of guiding the Olympic Peninsula and Southwest rivers, these Kings are a very prestigious fish to encounter. Not only their tremendous will to fight to the bitter end, but, the table fare of these hi-brood hatchery raised fish, are unarguably the finest tasting King in the Northwest. There is plenty of fish to eat for the whole family, when you land one of these chrome bright Springers. Their weight varies between 10-40 lbs. Most fishing is on the pristine waters of the Sol Duc and Hoh rivers. Some of the most beautiful water sheds in the country. The fishing is performed out of a 16 ft. drift boat, heated on those cool mornings for a more comfortable trip down stream.

We are also fishing the southwest Kalama, Cowlitz and Lewis rivers. These three rivers produce some hot action in the Spring and Summer months starting mid April for the Springers (Kings) running through June. The run this year for Salmon is expected to reach 300,000 again on the Colombia river system. We can host up to four people per boat. All fishing will be performed out of a 20-23 ft. jet-sled. Heated on the cool morning to keep those hands warm. All bait and tackle are included. Don't miss out on another huge run of Salmon!

Also the Olympic Peninsula has another run of Kings starting up river. Fishing for these monsters starts in June and lasts through August. Fishing is performed mainly on the glacial waters of the Hoh river. This is another beautiful river valley of rich mountains and feeder creeks for these Salmon to spawn in. This strain of King Salmon is larger and can tip the scales between 15-55 lbs. Summer Salmon enter the Hoh river bright as silver dollars, with an unbelievable amount of power. They are waiting for any anglers offer. The weather in this rain forest valley is generally very tolerable. With temperatures between 50-80 degrees.

In August, yet another run of Salmon begin their migration up our Olympic Peninsula and southwest rivers. The first rains generate thousands of Silver (Coho) and King (Chinook) Salmon. As the season progresses into October the numbers also increase, which many are trophy class. A trophy salmon in Washington state is 50 pounds. The fall season produces quite a few of these monsters. Some will reach the 60 lb. class. Our feisty Silvers are huge! The average Silver is about 10 pounds with many in the teens and 20’s. This fish is wild. They spin, jump, and roll around like a top. A great fish to catch! In November the quest for big salmon continues through Thanksgiving.
