    A friend and I are planning to head over to the Oly Pen for some steelhead fishing over the President's Day weekend. I want to hire a guide with a driftboat. I've done some searches on the web and the two guides that caught my attention were Ron Gras and Larry Scott (West Side Guide Service). Does anyone have any experience with either guide? Any other recommendations? I'll let the guide pick the river depending on the conditions around the 17th of Feb. Will probably drive over from Seattle on thurs 16th Feb and spend the night and fish all day Fri the 17th.
    Thanks!
