Guided Fishing Services
Here in Forks, we have a variety of Washington's best rivers all within a 30-minute drive from one another. Such as the Sol Duc river, Calawah river, Bogachiel river, Quileute river, Hoh river, Clearwater river, Queets river, Quinault river, and Lake Crescent located inside the Olympic National Park.
We guide anglers here on the Olympic Peninsula 12 months a year for Steelhead, Salmon, and Trout. We also do scenic float trips during the spring and summer months. The fishing methods we choose to use here ultimately depends on what YOU prefer. We swing flies with two-handed Spey rods for Wild Steelhead and Chinook Salmon. Strip streamers with single-handed fly rods for coho salmon and hungry Coastal Cutthroat Trout, and throw dry flies and nymphs depending on the season. Maybe you're someone who's never really fly fished and you're more into floats/ spinners, or back bouncing roe for big hatchery chinook during spring and summer? We can accommodate you too. We float these rivers in drift boats/rafts to access beautiful pristine water that can not be accessed by foot, floating stretches of river anywhere from 4 miles to 14 miles in a day.
We recommend 1 to 2 guests per trip, or 3 guests being the maximum for 1 boat. If you have a group of 4 or more please give us a heads-up so we can arrange for two guides and a second boat for your party. All rods, and fishing gear, will be provided, if you have your own gear that is the right fit for the job and you would like to bring it, we encourage guests to do so.
It is very important to let your guide know in advance how much fishing experience you have, that way we can come up with a perfect day that best suits the angler's ability. Guests that will be bringing their own waders and boots we ask that you please wear felt or rubber bottom boots, you will not be needing studded boots. If you do not own rubber/felt boots please inform your guide and we will get you taken care of. Before going fishing you must have a valid Washington State fishing license. If you have booked your trip with us, we will contact you days in advance to discuss the finer details of your fishing trip and everything you need to know to best prepare you for your trip. Such as meeting time and destination for the morning of your trip, current conditions, and a fishing report. At any time if you would like to know any more specifics regarding your trip feel free to contact us any time and we are happy to answer any of your questions. Hope to see you out there!
