Two Seasons for Salmon River Steelhead Fishing

Early Spring Steelhead Fishing Season  starts as soon as the rivers thaw in the middle of February and run through the end of March. The wildlife are right on the river while all the mountain peaks are buried in winter snow – not to mention the high density of steelhead that are pooled up waiting for the water to warm so they can start their spring run.

Fall Steelhead Fishing Season starts middle of October.  We then fish hard right up until the end of November. The early season fall run will be the fairest weather fishing we have to offer. With the water still warm and the fish full of energy, the steelhead put up a great fight!
