Description: About Hoh

The Hoh River on Washington's Olympic Peninsula is glacier fed from Mount Olympus within Olympic National Park meandering through a valley of temperate rain forest. Large gravel bars with long runs, log jambs and braided side channels dominate this river. It's one of the premier rivers for large winter run steelhead on the west coast. Steelhead are present year round and Salmon run April thru November. Sea Run Cutthroat are present summer and fall. The Quillayute Basin includes the Bogachiel, Calawah and Sol Duc Rivers in and around Forks, WA. The Bogachiel is a clear freestone river originating from Bogachiel Peak in the Olympic National Park and has numerous tributaries. Below the hatchery the Calawah joins the Bogachiel and adds considerable flow during fall and winter months. The Sol Duc also joins the Bogachiel at Three Rivers forming the Quillayute River to the Pacific. Be advised the Calawah and Sol Duc are technical white water rivers.
