Gorgeous water. Reminiscent of a Montana trout stream, this swift but manageable river is great for Steelhead and large trout fishing. It runs very clear so use light lines and be sure and fish the long rocky stretches for large fish mixed in with the submerged rocks. This is my favorite Fly Fishing river in WA. The Steelhaed runs are AMAZING! Also some huge sea run Cutts.
