Default Re: Washington Fly Fishing

I can't honestly comment on the salmon activity in the area but I did live there for a couple years and focused on trout so I can offer some advice. If your looking for trout you will have to travel or even hike a bit but it can be fun. The Dosewallips can be fun above the falls. If I remember correctly and things haven't changed you will have to hike several miles on a road to the trailhead. The Elwah can be fun above the dam but I heard they may have destroyed the dam so that may have changed things. There is a book out "olympic mountains fishing guide" by Dave Shorett that does a great job detailing the backcountry fishing. Much of which is accessable as day trips if your in shape.
