We specialize in chasing steelhead with the fly on the wild and scenic Klickitat River. The Klickitat has a strong run of two salt steelhead averaging in the eight to ten pound range with fish weighing in the teens not uncommon. These steelhead are known for fighting hard and their willingness to chase down the fly. They enter the river from June to November, which gives an angler a very long window to chase these great fish. From wet wading to wool hats you can find chrome bright fish.

Still good times 10/20
The warm night time temperatures have kept the fish active and moving around.  We have been fishing the entire system and finding fish throughout it.  Swinging flies on the slightly larger size seems to be producing slightly better.  The small bump in flows has moved some fish around which has helped as well.  We have […]
Fly fishing for steelhead on the Klickitat River
Outstanding Flyfishing on the Klickitat – 10/3/2019
River flows are decent, water clarity is high, however, steelhead are around. Fish caught throughout the day including a few salmon. Weather conditions were ideal with light rain in the morning and progressively cooler temps throughout the day. The highlight of the day was a customer boiling a steelhead on a skated dry fly.

Steelhead Caught and Released
Vern Olson catches a steelhead on fly while fishing the Klickitat River on one of my recent trips to Hood River. My introduction to steelhead fishing. Although, I realize the sporty way to catch them is by “swinging”. We did not get any that way.

Testimonials

Thought I would forward you this photo that Rick sent me. The subject title and the straight rod says it all. Anyways, I enjoyed the trip and had a great time fishing with you, again. Thanks for all you do and the extra effort you put out to help make the trips so enjoyable.I was looking at photo’s from the last three years of fishing on the Klickitat and it seems I have been able to land one nice native Buck every year. I think the one I caught this year is the best steelhead I have ever caught, not the biggest, just the best feeling fish. Hopefully, I didn’t just jinx myself by saying that. I’ sure we’ll be seeing you next year and remember to give a shout if you get down this way. We could go get a beer or something like that.
