Here is the Reel Time Pacific Northwest fishing and outdoor trivia question of the week:
This huge river that feeds into a major habor on the southcentral coast is so close to many metropolitan areas, and offers a great access to both boat and bank anglers.
It has a variety of migrating salmon, but it’s king fishery that can go well into the winter time is by far the biggest draw for fish that can exceed 45-plus pounds. At some points of the salmon season you can catch a king, coho and chum on a single trip. In fact the huge schools of chum can be a nuisance while trying to get into the coho and kings.
Many other nearby rivers get a lot of attention for their winter steelhead runs, and this one often gets overlooked and is a great producer. The headwaters of this river start on the southwest side of the Olympic National Forest fairly close the Quinault Indian Reservation.
