My favorite fish. Washington’s state fish. I caught my first one in December 1976 and Steelhead altered my path in life. It is a passion that was passed down in my family through four generations. We guide Steelhead on the Skykomish, Skagit, Sauk and other Puget Sound rivers (many near Seattle), the Hoh, Bogachiel, Sol Duc, Calawah, Satsop, Wynoochee and other Olympic Peninsula rivers and the Methow and Wenatchee rivers in eastern Washington. With summer and winter strains they are available, to some degree, throughout much of the year. Our late January to April wild runs, contain some of the biggest Steelhead found anywhere in the world. Not always easy, and every one should be appreciated, these sea-going Rainbows are pretty special fish. Swinging a fly on a Spey rod is my favorite way to spend a day, but they are great targets with both single and two handed fly rods and good sport on light conventional and center pin gear. Summer Steelhead are available from June through. October, hatchery Winter Steelhead from late November to January and our prime wild Winter/Spring fishery is February through April. Hatchery fish can be retained, wild Steelhead are 100% catch and release.
