What to Expect in June
How to use this section.
All of the Sol Duc is open in June. Look for a few summer-run steelhead and sea-run cutthroat, with increasing numbers of the former as the month progresses. Small Marabous, Muddlers, and Krystal Buggers are good fly choices when the Sol Duc drops to summer levels.
Throughout the Quillayute system, sea-run cutthroat will be moving up and down the river, and there are resident cutthroat. June will witness some golden stonefly hatches, which can interest the trout. You can have dry fly action in pocket water and pools where the water is moving. These being cutthroat, you aren't going to find them in the fast water like you might for rainbows. Use generic patterns such as size 14 tan Elk Hair Caddis, Parachute Adams, or small yellow or orange Stimulator. Slackwater pools are good places to ply a small streamer, such as a Muddler.
