I will give a good report short after I come back and if any person is planning in going and wanna go pm me. Im a new spey caster so Im not expert and new to steelheading just move to the Fort Lewis area. Any help will be greatly appreciate thanks and tight lines.

    The Hoh has been in pretty good shape lately, but it is going to get hot tomorrow. That will cause the visibility to get bad.
    The Sol Duc is very low and clear. There are fish spread out everywhere. Most are using floating lines with smaller flies now. Any color you are confident in will work as good as any. Move around and cover
    a lot of water. There are also some Coho in the Sol Duc.

    Good luck

    Iggie

    Was on the Hoh last weekend, and my observations track w/ Iggie's, who is, in my opinion, spot on on all points.

    With the weather the next couple days, the Hoh might not be a good bet. It's gonna get pretty grey. The Duc will hold on to it's clarity.
