The Hood Canal drainage consist of many streams and rivers from the Kitsap Peninsula to the Olympic Mountain range. Hood Canals main west side rivers include the Skokomish, Hamma Hamma, Duckabush, Dosewallips, and the Big Quilcene rivers. The Hood Canal itself stretches from essentially Port Ludlow, down to the town of Belfair Washington. Hood Canal remains one of the least populated stretches of Puget Sound.

The trout fishing in Hood Canal’s saltwater is fueled by some of the best small stream trout fisheries in the state. These Sea Run Cutthroat Trout are able to survive in the hearty and healthy river systems of the Olympics. However many choose to migrate out into the bait rich waters of Hood Canal. Some of the biggest populations of Sea Run Cutthroat call these waters home. Furthermore adding to the lure of this beautiful region.
