Northern Olympic coastal rivers are dishing out some good steelhead and king fishing

The northern Olympic Peninsula rivers have been the place to be, and has been holding up throughout the week.

“Pretty decent for kings in the Sol Duc, and sockeye are the newest thing around in the deeper pockets of the river,” said Bob Gooding, owner of Olympic Sporting Goods in Forks. “Bogachiel and Calawah are also doing OK for steelhead.”

Gooding says the Hoh is pretty glacially silted from snowmelt although fishable he says he wouldn’t give it a try right now.
