Methow and Upper Columbia steelhead in full swing
With over 13,400 and counting steelhead over Rocky Reach dam on the Columbia River the fishing is good and should stay good right through winter! We are currently fishing the Methow river in our whitewater raft with full fishing frame to keep you dry and safe. Also the Upper Columbia River in our 23' Wooldridge sled with heat! We will be doing jig and bobber fishing primarily on the Methow River with some fly fishing and hardware thrown in there also. It is hard to beat jig and bobber with a Steelybead dropper on the Methow River. On the Upper Columbia River we will be doing some jig and bobber also with some trolling thrown in there for fun. The Methow River is no bait selective fishery, with mandatory retention on all hatchery fish. As a bonus on the Methow you are allowed to keep all trout under 20" that are adipose clipped fish to allow a greater bag of fish. On the Upper Columbia River you can use bait so we will tipping our jigs with Pautzke cured coon shrimp. With all the fish in the system I am expecting good fishing all winter and early spring. Lots of open days so book now! Going to be a great winter!! See you out there!
