Queets River near Forks, Washington
A gorgeous river that can be difficult to fish in spots because of the heavily forested shorelines, Queets River offers a very nice fishery that is usually overlooked due to its proximity to bigger, better known waters. This is a perfect river for anglers looking for sanctuary from crazy vacation anglers. Every winter big native steelhead work their way up the river and summer also offers a nice steelhead run along with sea run cutthroat and some salmon. Foot access is decent, but wet hacking your way through the lush forest floor. The river is very rarely clear so you are going to have to learn how to fish off color water if you fish here often. Structure is all that you would expect of a classic steelhead river. The upper portions of the river offer nice native trout and a few char in the small runs and pools.
