The area where I fish is 3-4 hours west of Seattle Washington accessible either by ferry from Seattle or Edmonds then over the Hoods Canal bridge thru Sequim, Port Angeles and on to Forks or by driving south thru Tacoma, Olympia then west to Aberdeen/Hoquiam and north to Forks.
The west end of the Olympic Peninsula remains as one of the best areas of the continental United States for catching trophy steelhead and salmon. With most of the streams flowing out of Olympic National Park, the majority of the fish can still spawn and live their first few years in a natural environment without the pollution and dams of the developed areas. With little commercial fishing the fish runs are still relatively strong giving anglers a good chance of hooking the fish of a lifetime. Every year there are many fish caught and released in the 20lb category. With 5 floatable rivers within one hours driving time from Forks and many other small streams accessible by foot, Forks gives the angler many chances to catch that fish!
