summer steelhead action in the state.
Big summer steelhead weight between
7-20+ lbs. and tail walk like tarpon! Fall

best in the country. Kings weight in from

thousands. Ranging from 6-20 lbs. A great

Columbia Dams Fish Counts
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
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.
