The Humptulips, or the ‘Hump’ as it is commonly referred to, is a small gem of a drift boat river that drains into the north end of Grays Harbor near the central Washington coast. It is largely famous for its fall salmon runs with generous bag limits beginning in September, however hatchery winter and summer steelhead runs are present and worth noting. The Humptulips is probably one of the more user-friendly penninsula rivers as it is mostly a lazy, meandering stream that is suitable to boaters of all skill levels. Invariably it also produces a few trophy class native winter steelhead that show late in the season annually.
