Unfortunately we don't have maps in our collection to verify whether there are watersheds in Grays Harbor that empty into Hood Canal.  We did find a few online resources which might be helpful to your inquiry (see below).  There are other online resources we could use to verify your questions but due to the Federal governement shutdown we are unable to access those resources at this time.  If you'd like us to inquire into these resources once service has been restored please contact us at mapcollection@wwu.edu and we will be happy to assist you.

See Watershed Updates by Water Resource Inventory Areas (WRIA) at Washington State Dept. of Ecology http://www.ecy.wa.gov/apps/watersheds/wriapages/index.html.  Check the Water Quality Assessment maps under the Ecology links section for WRIA no. 16 for Skokomish-Dosewallips http://www.ecy.wa.gov/apps/watersheds/wriapages/16.html and WRIA 14 Kennedy-Goldsborough http://www.ecy.wa.gov/apps/watersheds/wriapages/14.html.  

The Skokomish Watershed is in a small portion of Grays Harbor but is considered by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) to be in Grays Harbor County. The following watershed management plan for Skokomish Watershed describes the main rivers that flow from this watershed in to Hood Canal. And there is information on the Skokomish Watershed at the USEPA website.
