Each spring we bring a group of anglers from around the country in search of a Pacific Northwest Icon. And with the help and expertise of the seasoned guides at Brazdas Fly Fishing each angler successfully holds a Wild Pacific Steelhead. The trip is tailored to anglers that love fly fishing. Early mornings and long days on the water is what you can expect. Our lodging is located on the banks of the Bogachiel River and comfortably sleeps eight anglers. All meals are prepared by the in house chef and can cater to any specific tastes.
Once you arrive at SEATAC international air port a shuttle bus picks you up and brings you to Boeing Air Field where you catch a short commuter flight to Port Angles, WA. Here our friendly guides (whom you will quickly become friends with) will load you up and bring everyone back to the lodge where cocktails and appetizers are waiting.
Each Day starts with coffee and a quick breakfast before heading to the river. We will be fly fishing on one of these world class Steelhead Rivers each day; The Hoh, The Sol Duc, The Bogachiel & The Queets. Each river fishes much different than the other and each has a strong run of WIld Native Pacific Steelhead.
Once on the river Anglers hop in a boat with a guide for the day and start down the river. While floating down stream anglers will nymph out of the boats (which proves to be extremely effective) until they reach a classic steelhead run in which they will try their luck at swinging a spey rod. This technique can be intimidating for a novice but the guides are very good spey casting teachers and will have you in a rhythm in no time. If Angler prefers to spey fish solely that will be arranged although we encourage you to try both.
After a day on the water Anglers head back to the lodge to share stories over cocktails and appetizers while dinner is prepared. Once your stomach is full sit back and relax on the lodge deck and over look the Bogachiel River, which you may have just fished. The guides will tie flies and also give you some pointers on local Steelhead patterns.
Here are what past guests have had to say about the trip
Joey, that trip was far more than I expected the fishing was unbelievable and the guides are the real deal. I cannot wait to go back next spring. Thank you. Matt Sprecher Owner Minturn Anglers Colorado
Thank you for putting together a great trip. I had such a wonderful time with all of you and got to fish everyday for a week, which was heaven. Definitely didn’t want to come home. I’m sure you guys probably thought it was odd for a single lady to jump in on a trip where she didn’t know anybody, but you all made me feel welcome and totally comfortable. Felt good to laugh for a whole week. I definitely plan on doing the trip again next year. Annie Kubicka, Napa California.
Joey I will definitely be back again next spring with my son. Thanks for putting together another great trip. I look forward to seeing the crew again in the spring. Paul Bonarrigo, Richmond Maine.
I stumbled into Jeff Brazda over 4 years ago and have fished with him all over Washington, Alaska and Montana. His passion for fly fishing is unmeasurable and is one of the best guides I have ever had the privilege to fish with. We hope to see you on the Olympic Peninsula in the spring.
