Hatchery Steelhead On Washington’s Best River Systems.

Hatchery Steelhead on Washington’s best river systems.

Hatchery Steelhead Season is closing in. Humptulips, Queets and Wynoochee river guided trips. 


 Hatchery Steelhead 


JP’s Guide service will be fishing hatchery steelhead starting the 2nd week of December on the Humptulips. The Humptulips River hatchery steelhead return builds throughout December and tails off in January. This fishery has outstanding table fair quality since most of these fish slither up the system over night. 

The Queets, large, broodstock winter return begins building well during first week of January. This winter-run will continue to build for the next couple weeks after. These fish are big, powerful and beautiful. Mostly Anchor fishing floats with jigs, beads and worms. Some plug fishing. However, this fishery is very finicky with weather conditions. 

The Wynoochee picks up just after Christmas and rolls throughout January.
I will be fishing hatchery steelhead from December 10th – January 15th.

I will be switching to Wild Steelhead, shortly after. These native, winter-run steelhead will consume the vast majority time from mid January to mid April. I am fully booked. thank you for your continued interest in my steelhead program. MESSAGE ME IF YOU WANT TO GO AFTER WILD STEELHEAD. I’m full, but this doesn’t mean I can’t get you on a cancelation list or set you up for 2021!
