I am thinking about fishing the Hoh River out on the coast. I was told that it is one of the better rivers to fly fish for Salmon/Steelhead and I am interested in scouting more of the coastal rivers. If anyone has any suggestions for how to explore this river or has any recommendations for other coastal rivers that are good for fly fishing I would really appreciate it. I am tempted to get a guide and do the float trip, but I am also interested in just finding a good river to wade out and fish. I am worried that there is no room for back cast or little access to the river. Also, If anyone is interested in driving out there with me on a weekday let me know (or maybe going in half on a guided trip for a day). I live in the Kent-Covington area. I have been fly fishing for about a year now and I am really hooked (pun intended). I work during the week but I am willing to take a day off when the whether looks good. I am not a fly fishing expert but I have lots of enthusiasm for the sport! I can tell good stories too!
