Hoh River

2/8/10 - Olympic Peninsula - The steelhead are in. 20+ pounders are being caught and the rivers are in prime shape. The Hoh River is running at 1,350 CFS and is fishing great. There are a lot of fish between Spruce Creek and Oil City. A lot of chrome fish are moving in and the river is prime to swing. Dark colored leeches have been doing the best lately. Nymphing has been the goto with egg patterns.

The Sol Duc is fishing ok below the hatchery. Early last week was prime, but now the fish are spread out you have to work hard with long dead drifts with the river getting low and clear.

After the next push of rain the Calawah River should get a lot of fish heading up it.

Bio: I spent three summers in Alaska guiding the rivers in the Bristol Bay Area and then lived in New Zealand for six months, before I figured out that I wanted to guide full-time for trout and steelhead on my home waters in Washington State. Now I focus on the Trophy Olympic Peninsula Winter Steelhead and the Wild Trout of the Yakima River.
