But to your question. As you only (apparently) have 1 day hire a guide. There are several rivers in the immediate (short drive) from both Seattle and Bellevue but killing half a day 'exploring' would waste a hell of a lot of your time.
Guide will also know where the likely places to fish (success) are likely to be. And that is 'gold' information.
Gear 'why's' most of these fellows don't use fly gear at this time of the year.
Edit: A 6wt at this time of the year will 'under-gun' you if they've had any significant rain fall.
