You could go salmon fishing, we have open dates

This is it, nows the time to book, we have open dates for October, one of the top two months to be on the Olympic Peninsula.  If you really like catching big shiny fish, ring ring…Hello Jim..I wanna go catch big shiny fish, thats you, calling me.  Actually probably better to email, but you get the picture.

We are catching lots of salmon, Coho and Kings, and things should just be getting started.

You could also still pull off a real nice steelhead trip, with this low water the dry fly bite should be really good in the afternoon.

Or, you could do what I have been doing.

Trout fishing.

Jack salmon will gobble up a dry fly intended for trout

A day of dry fly fishing for sea run cutthroat is a very cool thing, and I have been trying to talk everyone into while the weather and water is perfect.

Sea runs have a reputation for being push overs.  Some times they are, often they are not. When it comes to getting them on dries come prepared for anything.

This time of year they may switch from small mayflies in the morning to giant caddis later to tiny caddis in the afternoon.

When you dial them in the will compare in numbers and size to almost any trout any where in the world.

And there always surprises.  Jack salmon often can’t help but slurp dries, and summer steelhead pop up as often as not.

Anyway, that will only last a week or two, then its all salmon all the time until mid November.

      Hey John,
      So here are some answers, but we should move this to email if you are thinking of booking.
      We have some availability every weekend but Oct. 24. We can handle up to there per boat, and have as many as three guide boats depending on the week end. We fish the Sol Duc, Calawah, Bogacheil, queets, Hoh,…some others

  3. Jimmy, I counted thespots.

      I am sure you counted well. Your Dad was just guessing (but he is close). The trick is counting the spots on the other side.

    took a while but I got 932 spots visible? when we fishing? 🙂

  5. Jeff says:

    932 x 2 = 1864. Correct??

    • raincoastguides says:

      Very good Jeff,
      But this trout had only 2 spots on the other side, and sadly the contest has ended without a winner.
      We will have another contest soon.
