Olympic Peninsula Winter Steelhead
The iconic rivers of Washington's Olympic Peninsula loom large in the minds of fly anglers worldwide. Names like the Hoh, Bogachiel, Sol Duc, and Queets haunt the thoughts and imaginations of steelhead die-hards, evoking images of moss covered rain forests, tumbling coastal rivers, and chrome bright steelhead, fresh from the salt.
The rivers of the Olympic Peninsula are perfectly suited for swinging flies and offer some of the greatest winter steelheading opportunities in the Pacific Northwest. Originating high in the Olympic Mountains, these legendary rivers flow through lush temperate rain forest before entering into the Pacific Ocean. During the months of January through April, the rivers of the Olympic Peninsula host one of the world's largest runs of wild winter steelhead. It is these fish that have put this soggy serene corner of the country on the fly fishing map. While this is not a place to come to "pad the stats", the tug of a wild Olympic Peninsula steelhead can be nothing short of life altering.
Swinging flies on the Olympic Peninsula is an experience unlike any other. The landscape is rugged, and the beauty is intense. It is a trip into another world. Time moves slower here, marked only by the methodical step-cast-swing-repeat process of the diligent angler. And then, just like that, it all comes together....
