Stepping onto Washington’s Olympic Peninsula lands you smack dab in the middle of winter steelheading’s hallowed ground. Inch for inch this area provides both opportunity and sustenance to the steelhead fanatic. Winter steelhead fly-fishers seem to be imbued with a strange quirk not generally seen in genes of the normal fly flinger. The ability to survive and even revel in abusive weather conditions, cold water, lethargic fish tendencies, shortened days and bleak conditions that scream, “stay home” are all part of the magic and legend surrounding winter fish on the fly. In reality the quiet solitude, peaceful unhurried pace and dramatic possibilities make this a “must do” experience for serious fly anglers. As in most cases the rewards are commensurate with the challenges overcome.
For our multi day trips, we have partnered with Manitou Lodge, a fabulous lodge in the woods just outside Forks providing the type of wilderness lodging experience one would hope for in the rain forest of the Olympic Peninsula.
During the prime months, due to weather and water conditions we guide the following rivers which are all within striking distance of Forks. On any given day, water flows could alter plans so we are always prepared to fish any of these:
Our Olympic Peninsula steelhead fly fishing guides are all masters of the two handed rod as well as patient and experienced instructors to help novice and experienced spey fishers come way with a great experience and leave an improved caster and angler.
