Credit – Jeff Pierce of

June – August
Skamania (a summer run strain of Steelhead)
Atlantic Salmon in small numbers.
Chinook also start to show as early as July on high water. But number’s grow with good water conditions in late August.

September – Chinook (King Salmon) and Coho Salmon start coming in in good numbers

Steelhead start coming in in decent numbers.
A few Brown Trout start showing.

October – This is the prime month for Chinook-King Salmon. They come in in large numbers now. Coho Salmon are also coming in in good numbers.

Steelhead really begin showing in good numbers now.
Brown Trout also start coming in in decent numbers but Nov. is peak for them.

November Steelhead and Brown Trout!

Most of the Chinook King Salmon are dead or near dead but a few fresh stragglers do come in. While the Coho Salmon run is over for the most part. They remain in decent shape and hold up longer than the Chinook. This is a great time for Steelheaders! As the Salmon crowds are gone and the numbers of Steelhead are normally good.
The Brown Trout fishing is also pretty good, although not as good as tribs more to the west.

Dec – Feb.
This is obviously the coldest period. The fishing can be great for Steelhead depending on water temps and levels. You are best off fishing from late morning through the afternoon at this time of year. As the suns rays help to warm the water slightly, making the fish a bit more active. Brown Trout are often caught this time of year as well.

March – April Steelhead.

The water starts warming and the Steelhead start coming in in greater numbers. The spawn begins as the temps rise and often a small run of Brown Trout come in to feed on bait fish and Steelhead & Sucker eggs. Don’t be surprised if you hook a Chrome freight train that takes you for a ride! This is a GREAT time to target drop-back Steelhead! These are spawned out Steelhead who are now eating everything in sight. As they work their way back to the lake. The numbers of fish caught in a day at this time of year can be amazing. There are SPRING run Chinook in small numbers that show up at this time.

Usually some Drop Back Steelhead still around. Great time to fish if you enjoy solitude.
The first Skamania and Atlantic’s can be caught at this time as well.

Salmon River Steelhead Fishing Testimonial:

Dear Randy, I wanted to thank you again for such a great steelhead drift boat day on Sunday.
Steven and I are convinced that we learned as much about Steelhead fishing. And the Salmon River itself in one day. As we would have in 10 years of our own wading and exploring. Landing those Steelhead made the day a grand success! Thanks again, all the best and tight lines, Roger Murphy
Roger with just one of a number of steelhead that came to hand off the drift boat on this day. Congrats!
