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 Seattle’s feverish anglers as this gem of a river holds a variety of trout species that are wild and native to the region.The river above Snoqualmie Falls is comprised of 3 primary tributaries. The Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River, South Fork and the North Fork of the Snoqulmie converge just above the falls but upstream of this confluence exists some of the Seattle area’s favorite summer time fly fishing.The resident trout are nearly all native species of both Rainbow and Coastal Cutthroat of which the average size is around 8 – 10 inches with some surpassing this size range. Due to the size of the trout in here we generally recommend and use lighter weight gear on these streams. Any rod 3wt and under is terrific and for those who have found an old glass or bamboo rod in the closet, this can be a wonderful reintroduction.
While the forks are open all year, the prime season usually starts in earnest around mid to late June and extends into October. During the hot months, wet wading can be exercised 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.
