WILD STEELHEAD FISH RETURNS
- Mid/Late January — I start to get in my wild steelhead routine. Long Remote Drifts. This is the beginning of the good fishing for the southern coast. Not a lot of wild fish yet, however the few that are there have strong genetics and are very chrome. Somedays bring good numbers and others do not. You need to be willing to put in the time on a long drift and grind at your dream. Enjoy the solitude, not alot of angling pressure.
- February — This is the start of the peak of the wild return. Numbers begin to build and you have a great chance at a magnum sized buck. Mid month the bulk of the winter run begins its return into the coastal systems. Lots of small 6-10lb fish mix in with larger fish.
- March — Peaking with numbers of fish. Big colored bucks can be found coming down from the mountains and bright fish returning for the late “spring return” of steelhead. The end of the “new” winter run fish will also enter the systems here. Some can be large as well. Making this my favorite time of the year for both up and downhill fish.
- April — Extremely low pressure, solitude. Fish can still be chrome and still have a shot at big quality fish. I only guide the Hoh, Clearwater and Quinault this time of year since the other rivers are closed. By this time alot of angler pressure has died off and switched to spring chinook. These can be very memorable trips but it also is hit and miss.
