Steelhead Fishing is really starting to get good below Tippy Dam. Fresh Steelhead have ascended the river, feeding on the Chinook (King) Salmon eggs in the upper River. Spawning Salmon provide a good food scource for resident Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, and Steelhead. Good numbers of both Fall run steelhead, and Skamania Summer Run Steelhead.

There has been a large push of Coho and King Salmon above the coffer below Tippy Dam. Drift fishing with trout beads has been working well for us. Float fishing with small spawn sacks has also been good. We’re doing well on the Coho Salmon casting small Cleo spoons. Blue / silver has been the best.
