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 steelhead on the fly.
In reality the quiet solitude, peaceful unhurried pace and dramatic possibilities make this a “must do” experience for serious fly anglers. Our Bogachiel River steelhead fly fishing guides are excited to see you become a proficient spey caster and work hard to ensure each person leaves us an improved angler with a similar passion for the swung fly.
Rivers on the peninsula are smaller, each with a unique personality. The Bogachiel or “Bogi” as it is referred to by locals is a river with many faces.
The upper section has a little quicker descent and therefore has a smattering of both short and longer length typical runs for swinging flies. As you make your way towards the confluence with the Sol Duc, it begins to flatten and collect the large timbers from recent high water flows. Runs can be very long at times but don’t over-look the small pieces of water which lay in between.
While many hope to fish the Bogi, please understand the conditions change on a daily basis out here in the spring so any given day may alter plans putting us on one of the other rivers in the region.
