    Just a shout out to any one looking for a great OP guide...

    Last Tuesday Jim Kerr (Rain Coast Guides) and I fished the Sol Duc river. What a GREAT time!!
    It was a day I'll never forget.

    Thank you Jim.

    @Jim Kerr is a great guide and an even better guy. You picked a great one for your first experience.

    How'd you guys do out there? I was out Thursday-Sunday with little success on the fly. Found a few Coho jacks in the Quilayute, but couldn't find any steel. Wish I could head out there this weekend after the rain freshens things up a bit.

    We had a great day. Overall the fishing was great...catching a little slow, but the water was very low and clear. Had several coho grab at the fly, but no hook up. Caught several cutthroat and hooked up on one jack but lost him. No steelhead.
    The highlight of the day was landing one chinook on my 5 wt single hander and 6 lb leader. Not the biggest nook in the river but he absolutely crushed the fly and fought like hell. Great fun!
    If I could, I'd be there nearly every day...beautiful rivers, good fishing and Jim flat knows his stuff.
    This was my second experience with Jim on the river. It will not be my last.

    Yep, John Hicks nailed it....Jim is a great guide and an even better guy!

    I've fished with Jim and will likely always fish with Jim when I get a guide for the OP
