So I want to hear your guys input on this, if I had to choose between fishing reiter or tokul which one would give me the best chance to catch a steelhead. I have fished reiter before but never been to tokul. So if you guys could give your input on fishing these fisheries and maybe directions to tokul I would greatly appreciate it. I am trying to expand my fishing knowledge a bit, and try some new spots. Thanks for the help

Tokul is easy to get to.

Once in Fall City take the bridge over the river and then head a right onto Fall City/Snoqualmie Road (you get onto the road via a traffic circle). Stay on that road and then take another right on 372nd Ave. That road will take you right to the access site.

I would fish neither as they are both combat sites and fishing should be more relaxing than that. Hike a little ways below either of them and you will still find fish Tup:

Reiter is a great fishery to learn various techniques. They get more fish back there too. Tokul is going to be a weird flippin', flossin', shallow water fishery that doesn't teach you much about traditional steelhead fishin. You can catch fish there though. I would stick with Reiter till you start to figure things out then go off on your own to find some virgin water.

I would go to Reiter if the fishing is half way decent. I've fished around Tokul 2 out of the last 3 days, only saw one fish caught. Water is low and fishin' is slow - at least from what I've seen. Think we could use a shot of new water, I guess if the temps go up the snow will melt.......

reiter is good after a good flush

it has been really slow since chirstmas

but herd about six fish that were caught in the morning

if you wanted to catch fish your best chance right now is blue creek

Pick one and go then start to learn that river, how it fishes (where the fish lay and what the will take) when it starts to get low. I have had some great days out there when everyone else stayed in becuase the water was too low. There are fish in both systems rigth now, maybe not as many pouring in as a week ago, but there are fish around. I hooked one in the Snoqualmie yesterday and only fished for a couple of hours.

Neither also...I would fish just above the boat launch at tokul....or down at the school house in Fall city on the north side of the river..much more pleasurable choice. Or at the mouth of the Tolt as well.

Reiter is a great place to fish....I love the boulder garden scene.

However, I will only fish it for winter steel when it's quiet. Early to mid November, middle of the week and at the butt crack of dawn. :D

Personally I would send you up to Reiter like Hubby says there is alot of different water there, There are alot of guys with every different variation and gear style up there, If your there on a good day and people are in a good mood someone might share with you some secrets. Just remember that is a moody place sometimes the whole mood can be a little jacked don't take it personal.

One good thing about Reiter there is ALWAYS and i Mean ALWAYS a few steelhead up there, you always have a chance at a fish. If there isnt many people up there just reel a steelee spoon and you have an excellent chance. just be confident up there and you will find success.

It's gonna take some warm rain to get either place worth fishing. Reiter looks like it does in August right now with the water extremely low and clear.

I have a friend that has gone 2x's in the last 3 days. He caught and released one each day. He also had numerous hits. He really knows how to fish them, and pretty much has had the hits on Eggs.

He fished down from Tokul at the boat launch. I went to a hole I go to and saw 2 fish jump in 10 minutes about 2 miles downriver from there.

I will be heading there in the early morning, to bank fish since I just sold my little sled :(

What is the water like at either of these two places? Can I get by with my 1141 or do I need something heavier? Thinking about heading out Saturday as I'm dying to do some fishing.
