The Olympic Peninsula Steelhead Fly fishing: Much has been written about the coastal area and fishing, in Washington's last frontier. Many fly anglers consider the Queets River Rain simply the finest steelhead Fly fishing river on the coast. Why? First of all, The Queets lies within the Olympic National Park. 500 year old Sitka Spruce and monster Doug fir will remind you this land is held in preserve. Along with it's Pacific Ocean beaches, wildlife such as the Roosevelt Elk to American bald eagle there is nothing mundane about this Peninsula River watershed. The clearwater river is also a very quality steelhead river right next door.

Why the Queets late winter steelhead?

Based in a National Park the Queets has great fly water for swinging sinking lines with a Spey or single handed rod. Not as many anglers as most peninsula rivers. Not many guides, you have to have a special permit to guide it and most guides don't get it. The wild steelhead of the Queets River become the epitome of this timeless land. These late winter native steelhead can exceed thirty pounds. Twelve to twenty + pound fish are a daily occurrence amongst Dickson anglers. The Olympic Peninsula's Queets River has something for everyone.

Regulations: There is no bait fishing allowed after Feb., nor is there a steehead sport kill fishery within the Queets drainage. Many sport anglers gravitate to streams where they can kill them. That leaves you and me and the steelhead. Tuff gig, huh?Queets River steelhead, fresh from the ocean are both large and aggressive to the fly, exactly where you want to find that steelhead of your dreams.

It takes bodies: Modest winter/spring steelhead numbers estimate a population of over twice that of the yearly return of the very popular Skagit River. Bottom line:If you fish the right waters with good swing technique, you will probably swim one. That is where we come in.
