Default Hop Growing in Western Washington

Now I know that on the east side the mountains hops can be easily grown. I have done some research on this topic; but, it is pretty old so I figured I would gather some new perspective.

Can hops be grown in Western Washington since there is so much rain and so little sun? I am thinking about growing some Cascades and Magnums. Thanks!

After chopping down the first growth shoots and training the second growth my centennial are around 7 feet right now and cascade are around 5. They do just fine on the south side of my house year after yes, go for it.
