I asked a similar question some time ago. What I found out was rubber boas inhabit much of that state. I was smack dab in rubber boa habitat up there one year, and a local told me where he saw one.

They range up into the mtns but also can occur at forest edge areas near sea level. They prefer access to sunlight, so you probably will not have much luck in deep forest canopy. You can lay down corrugated tin at strategic locations if possible. You may find them to take pictures and such. True that you cannot take any rubber boas home unless you have a research permit.

I do not know what time of year or conditions to look in that state. I saw no herps in the nat'l forest when I was there one Fall, but then went to someone's house and found a few dozen toads in his yard and a few gartersnakes on the edge of a clearing. His neighbor found a rubber boa (he told me) one day in summer in a clearing next to forest under discarded wood. This was in Sequim.
