Utah guy looking for some advice..
I was hoping for some advice on an upcoming family trip we have planned to Olympic National Park. Let me tell you a bit about my setup and what I am looking for and any advice will be greatly appreciated! PM's work great if there are sensitive waters you would rather keep quiet.

The plan is the week of the 4th of July to take my family wife and 2 kids up to the park to see the sights. We are pulling up our 33 foot 5th wheel and planed on staying at the quileute ocean resort RV park in la push WA. I will have 2 float tubes available with me. I am a catch and release fisherman who will fish with flies and jigs. I will have a 4wd truck.

What I would like to find is 1 full day fishing where I hike a float tube into a alpine lake and fish for trout or salmon.
I would like suggestions on 3 other trips partial day places to go either steam fishing for trout or short hike for family to fish for trout.

Since this will be my 1st visit to the park any advice that you have on must see things to do, places to go, and can't miss activities for kids and families would also be appreciated. We are coming up for the week of the 4th of July and the MRS wants to see fireworks so if you know of a place to see them in that area let me know!

Thanks in advance and if I can offer any information on Utah fishing feel free to ask!
Eat it you dirty little fish!
