The Humptulips River has some of the greatest runs of salmon in Washington State. It flows from the southern foothills of the Olympic mountain range and empties into Grays Harbor.
Chinook Salmon enter the river as early as September and are available throughout the fall season. Coho and Chum Salmon flood in as soon as we get that first healthy rainstorm. The river is alive during the fall season.
Those frosty early December days are the beginning of our Steelhead fishing season. We see returns of Hatchery Steelhead first, and have a couple good months of fishing for ones that we can bring home.
During late January we see the first true Wild Steelhead enter the system, and our trophy hunting begins! This is strictly a Catch & Release experience, but we see the largest Steelhead of the season from February through April.
