Seeking Steelhead in the Rainforest

The temperate rainforests of the Pacific Northwest coast are wet. As in, really wet. Most of the time. Occasionally the rain stops, the sun breaks out and we’re treated to a warm(er) day of steelhead fishing.

When these small coastal rivers are running high, crossings can be in short supply so it means a lot of bank scrambling and bush wacking is in order to find the safe spots to cross.

But who doesn’t love a good adventure? Even if it means a long day of slogging through the brush, maybe nearly falling in the river once or twice, and hopefully connecting to a fish or two.

This is our favorite way to test DRYFT waders and gear. We load it up, and go hike and fish 8 or 9 miles of river.
