Try to shorten up the power worm. Unless your targeting the real pigs! :chuckle:

It’s pretty damn cool when a big angry buck tries to kill a 6 inch worm and damn near rips the rod out of your hands!!

Does your guide fish any of the other rivers as a back up in case the Duc is out?  Calawah seems to come back in shape sooner than the others, but can be trickier.  Seems a lot prefer raft over drift boat on that one.

Awesome weekend of fishing on the Sol Duc! Really big fish this time of year. I would like to give a shout out to our guide Nick Tucker (360)477-6740, he did a really good job plus he was really reasonable. I fish a lot but he knows every channel and rock in that river and was able to put us on the fish. Did a 13-14 mile float in gorgeous weather. Not many things more beautiful than the Peninsula on a sunny day in February.

If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.

I was going to mention this too, but then I saw you already have success photos.  Nice job.  I too think the Sol Duc is the nicest float on the OP.  There are some creeks and tributaries I target when everything else is blown out that usually only need a half day of clear weather.  I am sure they are known to most locals, but thankfully I can usually hit them without seeing anyone else.
Dreams are forever on the mind, realization in the hands.
