|Water Temp: 72ºF Flow: 1800 cfs|
|We have been getting many calls & e-mails about when is the best time of year to fish for Salmon, Steelhead etc.
There is no question you can fish the Salmon River and be successful in the summer months for summer-run Steelhead (Skamania), Atlantic's, & Brown trout. What you may not realize is, most of those fish stand a greater chance of mortality due to the stress of water temperatures and not being handled properly. As a rule we like to wait at least until mid-September. Generally speaking, there are much better minimum river flows, which in turn equal better conditions to enjoy a great resource. The survival of any salmon migrating in these water temperatures is ridiculous to even think about. Be patient in another month all will be great.
