Where should an insider start their search for fishing/hiking/camping in the Pacific Northwest region? I'd like to start in Seattle or Portland and go from there. This would be for about a week long vacation in the spring.
Checkout the rain forest in Olympic National Forest its so cool you feel like a dinosaur could be standing there next to you. After that you can head down to the beach and explore the tidal flats. Its pretty amazing the amount of sea creatures you find when the tide goes out.
