Epic Score: ***

Difficulty: High

The Bogachiel, Calawah and Sol Duc Rivers are among the few rivers that can still truly be called “wild” -- with headwaters protected on National Park land and not a single dam to impede their course to the Pacific Ocean. As such, these prime "OP" (Olympic Peninsula) rivers arguably offer the best opportunities in the entire nation for catching large Native Steelhead on the fly. Not only that, these rivers support large runs of chinook, coho and sockeye salmon depending on the season, and sea-run cutthroat trout! 

The fly fishing in this area combines spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife, rugged terrain, and huge wild fish. Pick your water -- the Bogachiel with its larger classic steelhead runs, or the smaller and more intimate Calawah and Sol Duc offering riffles, pools, runs and pocket water in an emerald green rain forest setting.  Whichever you pick, if you only have a couple days to fish and it's cold and rainy, you want to optimize your time fishing great holding water. There's too much water to scout on your own, and the rivers change with every flood event. I know where the best spots are ... and where to go for solitude and an incredible outdoors experience. Use this guide to make sure you're on great water and increase your odds of landing a trophy.

This self-guided experience will guide you to specific coordinates where the best walk and wade fly fishing spots are, and how to reach them via hidden 4wd roads and hiking trails. I'll tell you how to get there, where to park, what hot spots to fish, what species to target (and when) and how to have the best fly fishing excursion -- for a day or more, alone or with friends!

Here's what you get with each purchase.
