Our Fishing Club Sponsors
Our fishing club is privileged to have the support of many fine sponsors. They help us achieve our club goals with their financial support and contributions.
Club Fishing Reports
Our club fishing reports will tell you who's catching what, when and where!
We meet monthly, the 3rd Thursday, to share fishing information and to hear from professional biologists, guides and local experts on topics pertinent to the Olympic Peninsula.
Recent topics have included: the Elwha damn removal, techniques for fishing for halibut and Bottomfish/Rockfish identification. We have a raffle at each meeting ($1.00 tickets) for fishing gear like lures, tools and rods.
It's a great way to add to your tackle box and as everyone knows, "you can never have too much tackle". See below for meeting details.Interested in Great Places to Fish? You can find Great Places to Fish photos taken by our members throughout this website and on the Reports page.
