Snoqualmie Photo Journal
The Snoqualmie River is located just east of metropolitan Seattle
about 30 minutes just off Interstate 90.
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.
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!
With a steelhead hatchery located near the base of the falls, there are good numbers of steelhead returning each year to the river. In addition, the river being very small and intimate compared to most of the renowned PNW steelhead rivers, chances of hooking a steelhead in the fall are quite good.
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.
