Columbia River Fishing GuideGreat weather and great fishing is what’s best about summer Steelhead. This is usually shorts and tee shirt weather, what could be better. We use light tackle and premium bait for these high-flying silver bullets. We start targeting these summer Steelhead in June and fish for them through July and August. These are fast moving, high jumping, and hard fighting fish. This fishery is definitely an experience you will not forget.

These summer Steelhead average 6 to 12 pounds depending on the run and fishery. Later run B-run steelhead can average well into the teens with some reaching the 20-pound mark. Fishing these beauties on light tackle is pretty tough to beat. We target these summer Steelhead in the Columbia, Cowlitz, Lewis, and Drano Lake. It’s not uncommon to hook 10 to 20 fish on these summer steelhead trips.
