What can we expect on our fishing trip?

Your Nick T's Guide Service awesome fishing trips start off early in the morning around 7 am. We float anywhere from 4-16 miles in a day through some of the most beautiful landscapes on the earth. 

The Hoh Rain Forest is one of the largest temperate rainforests in the U.S.  Within Olympic National Park, the forest is protected from commercial exploitation. This includes 24 miles (39 km) of low elevation forest 394 to 2,493 feet (120 to 760 m) along the Hoh River. The Hoh River valley was formed thousands of years ago by glaciers. 

The Hoh River is the primary river of the rain forest, thus it's name.
