Hardy little bastard.
Sure did. That little sucker was tough! I'd go quite a while with nothing and then I'd find some new poop. Finally he took off or died. Never smelled anything so I assume he found a nicer SMB to live in...maybe one with heat and A/C that actually worked.

Beautifull photos. Care to share the location of your beach front camp site? We love Hobuck beach at cape Flattery. We have spent quite a few New Years eve's there.

Didn't see any fish on the grill... You sure you really caught some on that first day
Great pics, I usually head that way at least once a year. I need more time to further explore!

Cheers
David

Thankyou AT.

That spot is called Morgans. It's right off the Upper Hoh River Road just up river from that little outdoor store. It's a big gravel bar where fisherman launch and take out their rafts and drift boats. Most of the time there is a "Public Fishing" sign on the main Hoh River Road indicating where the turn off is but, on this last trip it had been stolen. Once you turn off the main road you'll pass a pit toilet which comes in handy and the road will lead you down to the bar.

Another good spot for boondocking down by the river is at the Cottonwood campground. This is off the Lower Hoh River Road. You drive through the campground and there is a road that goes down to a really large gravel bar on the river and there are lots of places to park on the gravel bar with big open views of the river. Once you're at Cottonwood it's an easy drive down to the end of the main river road where there is a trail out to the ocean and a beautiful beach.

I would also recommend the South Fork Hoh campground. Its pretty small with only a few spots, but its beautiful and relatively quiet compared to other campgrounds in the area.

It's my understanding that they are not needed when on the gravel bars but for everywhere else don't forget your "Discover Pass". My buddy got a ticket last year.

We didn't catch any steelhead on this trip, but then we didn't really fish very hard. After a long winter of rain here in the PNW we were pretty content to just take it easy and enjoy some good beers in the sunshine. Besides, I always release the wild fish and only retain hatchery steelhead.
