Sylvia (Grays Harbor County) Fishing Report
Available Fishing Guide
Name: River Otter Guide Service Contact: (425) 422-9616
My passion for catching steelhead and salmon has turned into a occupation as a river fishing guide here in the Northwest. I’ve been guiding for over 25 years now and have many secrets up my sleeves for those days when the fish just don’t want to cooperate. I’m also a professional career firefighter /officer and USCG Captain. Experiencing a quality guided trip down the river from my 21' jetboat is the way to go. I will provide you with all the bait and tackle you need and take your picture with that prize fish of a lifetime.

My dad, brother and I went to Sylvia for opening weekend. We caught 8 fish between us for the weekend but the highlight was my accidental monster. We had had a few drinks at our campsite and I decided that I would go cast a line from our campsite which was right on the lake. The first cast I yelled "I got one!". I had no idea the size until I got the fish to shore. I have never caught a fish that I could not lift out of the water with my fishing rod. This one would not come out of the water until my brother grabbed it. As he tried to get the hook out, the fish thrashed and spit the hook. My brother said he could not get halfway around the fish with one hand. It was the biggest trout I have ever caught. My guess is about 2-3 pounds maybe? I was using a rainbow trout Kastmaster. Super fun weekend despite not boating as many fish as we would have liked. Lake Sylvia State Park is an amazing campground with many sites that backup to the lake. We kept our 10 foot livingston in the water the whole weekend and could launch from our site. Will certainly come back. Unfortunately no pictures of the monster.
