Situated at the heart of the PNW wonderland, Washington has such a diverse fishing landscape. From the rainforested mountains and wild steelhead of the West End to the dry desert eastern Washington lakes filled with Browns and Lahontan Cutthroat. We really have it all here in the state. We Specialize In: Sea Run Cutthroat year around. Whether in the rivers of the Olympic Peninsula or salt water beaches from Sequim around to the north end of Hood Canal and Indian Island. Especially in the Puget Sound, Kingston, on Bainbridge Island and south to Allyn, Gig Harbour and Ollala for the early chum fry out migration. Steelhead, summer steelhead will hit dry flies and smaller wet flies. Winter Steelhead will take a swung fly or it's a nymphing game. Up to you, or do both! Trout, either on foot high up on the Olympic Peninsula or floating a drift boat down the Yakima river, we do it all. Char is often caught accidentally when fishing for Steelhead but in certain circumstances you can fish them for catch and release. Make sure to keep them in the water and use barbless hooks. Salmon, when they show up in the rivers and you are allowed to fish for them it can be quite a lot of fun on the fly!
