This year's winter steelhead season got off to a promising start just before Thanksgiving, when the first wave of fish started snapping up anglers' lures in several Columbia River tributaries. With decent river conditions, catch rates should continue to improve in the weeks ahead.
“The first jag of winter steelhead was definitely on the bite,” said Joe Hymer, a fish biologist for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW). “So long as the rivers don't rise too high or fall too low, we could be looking at a darn good fishery this year.”
Hymer recommends the Cowlitz, Lewis (including north and east fork), Kalama, Grays, Washougal and Elochoman rivers, along with Salmon Creek in Clark County and Abernathy Creek in Cowlitz County.
