    Default Olymic Peninsula...????

    The last time I was up there was in September, several years ago. I concentrated on cutthroat in the estuaries, canal and sound but the originating streams look like they'd be good for trout fishing....

    You're probably right about many of the hatches up there being similar. However, it should be noted that the further north you go (latitude) the shorter seasons become. So, even if the hatches are similar, they may not occur in the same point in the summer and my be shorter in duration.

    One of the members of this BB community recently moved to WA. Maybe he can post some info for you.... Otherwise, I'd spring for a good map.

    DD, If you are over on the ocean side of the mountain, try the Sol Duc river below the hot spring for fast small stream action. Small cutts readily took common dry flies in the middle of the day. The fish were very wild and pretty. HC
