The Snoqualmie River is located just east of metropolitan Seattle about 30 minutes just off Interstate 90.
Much of the year this river fluctuates with the rainfall and snow melts with the best of the NW rivers. But come summer, or late spring in dry years, the Snoqualmie becomes a playground for many of the Seattle’s feverished anglers as this gem of a river holds a variety of trout species that are wild and native to the region as well as steelhead and salmon.
The NW is well known for steelhead, and the “Sno” has its fair share of them.
Below the majestic Snoqualmie Falls and the Salish Lodge and Spa perched on its shoulder, the river becomes easily boatable during the summer and can be a wonderful half or full day float with shots at rainbow, sea run cutthroat, dolly varden and more importantly, steelhead!
The season usually starts in earnest around mid to late June and extends into October. During the hot months, wet wading is the norm as the cool water takes some of the sting out of the late afternoon heat. Come join us for a wonderful NW experience among the lush landscape and wildlife of the Cascade Mountains’ west side.
Our Snoqualmie River fly fishing guide trips are perfect for novice and experienced anglers alike or those with a small window of time who still want to get on the water for a true PNW steelhead or trout experience.
