Winter Steelhead

December - April

Price - $250 for one person or $225 each for 2-3 people.


The acrobat of the river! These fish seem to spend more time jumping out of the water, Than in the water. Steelhead are smart fish. Once your able to trick one into biting your hook you then have to keep it from getting off. They will try to wrap on anything in the water or jump to spit the hook. but once you get them to the net its a wonderful reward. Steelhead are less "fishy" tasting. So if you know someone who doesn't usually like fish. Have them give this a try.

Steelhead range in size from 5-20lbs with the occasional fish over 20lbs caught every year.


this season generally starts in December as a Salmon/Steelhead combo trip and then Steelhead only from January 1st - mid to late April. This trip is perfect for beginners and experts alike! these trips are usually action packed with limits not uncommon!
