Steelhead Fishing Guide
steelhead fishing guide:
Steelhead fishing on the Olympic Peninsula is very popular, these runs bring people from all over the world to catch a steelhead. The Olympic Peninsula is known as the the steelhead capital of the world.
We have a hatchery runs of steelhead and native runs of steelhead. We do promote catch and release on the wild fish but I feel the final decision should be the paying clients. I do push to release the females more because one male can fertilize a couple of female nest. The sponning fish is our future.

The Rivers of Washington State's Olympic Peninsula have been a favorite for anglers around the world. These Rivers offer King and Silver Salmon as well as the Olympic Peninsula's Famous Steelhead Trout.
You will be fishing from a heated 17' drift boat or a 16ft raft in low water conditions, and using top of the line gear & tactics to ensure Fish On Action.

king salmon charters:
The coast line of Washington has been a real fan favorite for years and it offers many species of fish, marine life and scenic opportunities. It has given anglers the chance to catch a king of a lifetime with lots smiles and fish for the cooler its a awesome experience.
King salmon fishing off the coast of Washington is and has bean proven to be one of the best salmon fisheries on the west coast. I fish out of the Quileute Indian Reservation just minutes from Forks on the Olympic Peninsula. I have fished out of this port since I was a kid and know and respect it well.
The king and silver fishing on the Olympic Peninsula is a great opportunity for anglers to get there salmon fishing fix and fill the freezer.
These fish are fresh from the ocean by hours. Fishing for salmon in the rivers isn't same as in the ocean these fish are limited on space and put up a great battle and with light gear this is a awesome display of power and energy.
Whether we fish from the 17' Willie boat when the water is up or the Outcast raft for low water conditions the comfort level is high. The gear and the line is light for maximum fish hookups and durable enough to land the big ones.
When the day is done I will gut and gill the fish and put them in bags for you. You then need to keep them on ice to ensure freshness.
The Halibut Fishing off the coast of Washington State's Olympic Peninsula is excellent! Our Halibut Fishing Charters provide anglers with a world class opportunity to catch these great fish.
Halibut are one of the most sought after species in the ocean, they are good fighters on the end of the line and awesome on the grill.
We fish halibut on the open ocean, in Canadian waters and in the Straits of Juan DeFuca. The seasons on the open ocean in US waters is controlled by a weight quota. This makes the season very short we usually get 10 days of less out of area 3 and 4 La Push and Neah Bay. The fishing is that good. The fish are good sized averaging 30-60lbs with some larger.
bottom fish charters
bottom fish charters:
The Sea Bass fishing on the ocean is great. This is a very popular fishery for a family adventure, close to shore, light gear and lots of fish. Fishing for sea bass is easy for all members when we find a school of bass we lower jigs to the bottom and real them up or cast plastic on lead heads either way its fish on.
Along with the fishing there is great scenery and sea lions that people of all ages like to watch. Early in the season we do sea gray whales while fishing as they are plankton eaters and feed close to shore.
I have had several young happy faces during bass fishing because they like to catch fish not just fish.
I do clean and bag the fish when we return but since the limit is 10 per person there is a $5 per limit fee.
ling cod charters
ling cod charters:
Off shore lingcod, we have found a spot off shore that produces big lingcod one after another. This spot has so many fish its unreal I have not scene any thing that compares to it.
These big fish average 25lbs. with some over 40lbs. We don't get to fish these fish all summer because the state has in the last two years put a 20 fathom restriction on bottom fish. Last year it was mid May. These fish are 30 km off shore.
We do have lingcod fishing closer in at 10 km off shore the fishing is good but the size is smaller 15lb average and some up to 30lbs. When the restriction are in place we fish around the rock close to port. The fishing is ok with lots of bass and rock fish.
Lingcod has to be my person favorite fish to eat. I do like it above Halibut not by much but it is tastier.
Everyone I have taken off shore is very impressed with the fishing and the size of the fish.
We do fillet and bag the fish for you.
The tuna fishing off the north coast has become reel popular with the salt water anglers. The albacore tuna is a awesome fish to battle, they are so fast and strong.
The time of year is late summer. This is Mid Aug. and Sept. when the warm water is close to the shore. We keep close tabs on the water color and temp. for the best action.
The Albacore tuna fishing has become very popular on the west coast the last few years and become my favorite fishery. When its happening the fish are hitting the deck. We just day fish for the tuna go out early and return late afternoon.
Albacore tuna hang in warm water and this waters moves up the coast in late summer. We have computer sites that show satellite shots of water temp and color. The tropical blue water is what to look for. This makes it easer to find and get the fish.
The Pacific Ocean on the cost line of Washington is absolutely breathtaking. There is lots of unique rocks and beaches with abundant sea life and water foul like sea lions, sea otters, eagles, puffins and several others. We do see whales on occasion in the spring, -we see gray whales that are migrating north for the cooler waters of Alaska and feeding along the shores as they are plankton feeders.
Later in the year we start seeing humpback whales that are also migrating north. They are small fish feeders so they are where the food is. Once in a while we also see Orcas (killer whales). Here they are feeding on salmon, so they typically are further off shore.
We offer site seeing trips on the ocean and in the rivers.
The Pacific Ocean on the cost line of Washington is absolutely breath taking. There is lots of unique rocks and beaches with abundant sea life and water foul like sea lions, sea otters, eagles, puffins and several others.
River tours offer greenery with lots of trees and shrubs with the wild life. The rivers have white water and site seeing combined. Some rivers have more white water than other depending on the amount of thrill seeking a person is into. Along the rivers there are lots of bald eagles and some deer and elk.
The Olympic Peninsula in Washington State offers some of the most breath taking sites, whether it be on the Pacific Ocean or it's world famous rivers such as the Quillayute, Sol Duc, Bogachiel, Calawah, Hoh, or Queets.
Sight seeing tours are available on the salt water, and on the rivers. Ocean tours to watch Whales, Sea Lions, Eagles, and more. The ocean always produces breath taking sites. River tours are also incredible with Eagles and abundant wild life.
