The O.P. rivers are Blown out. I was out there earlier in the week. I floated the Satsop for the first
time. For a flyfisherman I was a little bummed. The part that discouraged me was as soon as you get to the mainstem of the river there are jet boats running all over the place and it was busy for a weekday. I like to swing my spey and the best spots to swing are in the lower part of the river.  The East fork is small and better for nyphing or short swings with a switch.
We also fished the Humptulips with pretty low visibility. The Humptulips when in good condition can get a beautiful green color. We did get a fish just below the hatchery. The river doesn't get the jet boats and has a softer gradient with some nice swing water. 
Usually the last river to go out of shape in the area is the Upper Quinault. We wandered up there on Saturday only to find low viability again. We ended up just fishing one run and decided to head for cover as it was raining pretty good. I knew the river would get worse so time to make some calls, reschedule some trips and head for the Barn.
