There are a few items we need to know first:
1. Do you have your heart set on going to the Olympic Peninsula for a reason?
2. What are you trying to catch?
3. Is this just a fishing trip or are there other activities involved?

October is not considered a prime time for steelhead on the Olympic Peninsula. There are some summer steelhead around and it can be very good for Coho/trout. If you have your sights set on steelhead, I think you're better off looking elsewhere at that time period. Columbia tributaries in the U.S. and Skeena system in Canada are the obvious choices at that time for steelhead.

At the moment I am just exploring possibilities. I am not neccesarily hell-bent on OP or chasing steelhead (would love some coho, but only on the swing).

Yes. It is worth doing so. You will find coho, Chinook, summer steelhead (only on a few of the rivers), and searun cutthroat. But as has bee mentioned, the steelhead rivers east of the Cascades have much better steelhead fishing.
