Winter Steelhead

Action, action, action on such small pristine waters like the Wynoochee River, Satsop River, Humptulips River, and the Chehalis river. This time of the year you will find very aggressive winter steelhead that bite eggs good. Our primary ways of fishing them are Side drifting and float fishing. We fish out of small sleds and drift boats. The average size steelhead runs 12-14lbs when many of 20 plus pounders have been landed.

The Cowlitz River is a river in the state of Washington in the United States, a tributary of the Columbia River.
