Skykomish River Columbia River Tributaries Cowlitz, Lewis, and Kalama

Fishing Guide Service

Spring, Summer and Fall fishing on the mighty Colombia river tributaries.
The Cowlitz, Lewis and Kalama rivers have some of the best fishing in Washington state. Spring kings on the Lewis river in April and May is the best fishing you could ask for. These Hot kings tip the scales between 10-30lbs. Best table fare there is!
 The Cowlitz river provides the hottest summer steelhead action in the state. Big summer steelhead weight between 7-20+ lbs. and tail walk like tarpon! Fall salmon fishing on the Cowlitz and Lewis rivers for kings and silvers is some of the best in the country. Kings weight in from 12-50 lbs. Silvers come in the rivers by the thousands. Ranging from 6-20 lbs. A great fish to catch and put on the BBQ, smoke or have the neighbors over for dinner!

Steelhead is a very popular fish. The steelhead is actually a rainbow trout and is one of the hardest fighting fish you may ever had the chance to catch. Your steelhead may break the water surface several times during the fight. Steelhead can actually be found in our popular Rivers all year long. Their location and feeding habits change from season to season and selecting a popular Skykomish river fishing guide is important if you want to learn how to catch steelhead. January is the best time to get in on the peak run of hatchery steelhead on the Skykomish River system and other Puget Sound area Rivers. The wild steelhead run also starts in this time of year.
In Federal worry there is lots of trophy steelhead fishing and it is not unusual to catch steelhead weighing close to 30 pounds.
Steelhead fishing in march and April is very good. The Skykomish River offers all sizes of steelhead and lots of nonstop action.
During the early summer months of June and July the summer steelhead runs begin. Many of these hatchery steelhead are not only great fun to catch, they are also very good to eat.
Later in the year in November, we still catch lots is steelhead as well as fall Chinook salmon.
