WhenJanuary – April 15th
DepartHumptulips, WA
GuidesRay, Mike, Ian, Matt, Cary, Tom, Mark
Boats16′ Drift Boats

To catch a Steelhead, of any size, is a lifetime accomplishment. But when Steelhead reaches the 20lb or larger mark, to catch and to LAND one is lifetime dream come true. This fishery is one of the most legendary of the entire year and one of the few opportunities to catch a trophy wild steelhead, and what better place in the world to do so than the central Olympic Peninsula. These fish are built like a rocket, and like to fly. There’s no better way to experience all of this than on light spinning tackle. This trophy fishery is strictly “catch, picture, and release”…$225/pp…$450 private boat for one or two. Multiple boats and guides are available.
