Lewis River (East Fork) Reports
The East Fork Lewis offers fishing for summer and winter steelhead. Both boat and bank angling are available. Under recently-adopted permanent regulations, the entire river is closed to fishing from March 15 through April 15. Effective April 16 through May 31, hatchery (adipose-clipped) steelhead may be kept from the mouth up to the top boat ramp at Lewisville Park. Selective gear rules are in effect only during that period. All salmon angling is closed in the East Fork Lewis, and the river and all its tributaries upstream from Horseshoe Falls are closed to all angling under permanent regulations. For current, real-time river flow information, check the NOAA web site at http://www.nwrfc.noaa.gov/data/streamflow/nwrfc/lewis.html. Boat launching is available at Daybreak Park and Lewisville Park, both operated by Clark County Parks Department.
