Guide for late February

Discussion in 'Steelhead' started by daveypetey, Jan 16, 2013.

  1. Hey guys,

    My dad and a buddy are coming up in late Feb for 3-4 days and we are interested in getting a guide for the OP or S rivers, which ever is fishing best. We only catch and release, and are experienced fly fisherman. We all standard cast and will only need flies. I have a skagit set-up I've only used a few times. Any rec's would be great.

  2. All the S rivers will likely be closed in late Feb.
    Give Jim Kerr a call.
  3. I did not know that. So steelheading wraps up pretty quick huh? Can you PM me Mr Kerr's number?
  4. All the local rivers used to be open until the end of March or April. They no longer are due to the poor shape Puget Sound steelhead runs are in.
    Most of the hatchery fish will be done by the end of January, so they close them early to protect the wild fish.
  5. Bummer. I still haven't had a day to get out and try out my new skagit set up.
  6. If you are in to getting on a boat and catching fish no matter the method, give Mr Kerr a call for sure 360.301.4559 i believe.

    If you are looking for a more traditional approach check out Bob Triggs.
  7. Is the boat flies or gear? We are only looking to fly fish.
  8. Fished last year with The Evening Hatch guys on the Wynoochee, had a blast. We nymphed all day and caught fish. They talked about having some decent days swinging on the North Peninsula rivers like the Sol Duc and Hoh. Might check them out, they are a site sponsor.
  9. Don't get me wrong, Jim is a master with the fly, be it nymph, Spey, whatever. He really knows where the fish are, and will help you find them. He does walk in trips too.
  10. Anyone vote that we head into Canada?
