What to Expect in March
How to use this section.
The Hoh offers plenty of medium-depth, medium-paced runs where fly anglers can tease the bottom with a large dark fly. The problem is that it is fishable only about a third of time.
If the river is running low and clear you should stick to small flies in pink or orange, and drop your tippet size; fluorocarbon leader will help, too.
When the river is off-color, which it usually is, try large dark patterns such as black General Practitioners. With in-between clarity, use bright Marabou patterns or Egg Sucking Leeches. Use a sink tip line and traditional tactics.
If a storm rolls in, the Hoh silts-up quickly and clears slowly; the Sol Duc is your option when that occurs. On the Hoh, you'll find clearer water upstream near the National Park boundary.
