Skykomish River: Hit Reiter Ponds and take your float rod! Also don't hesitate to take your drift gear but it can be very snaggy.

Snoqualmie River: Fish Big Eddy and Tokul Creek. Again take your float rod and float jig, eggs or sand shrimp. Drift boaters can put in at Plums landing and float to Fall city. Lots of good plug water. Drift fisherman can hit the river at the mouth of the Tolt fishing down river from there.

Cowlitz River: If you don't mind some company then hit Blue Creek. If your in a boat, most fish are being caught side drifting eggs. From the bank don't hesitate to use floats/jigs or traditional drift gear. There's plenty of fish, including some reaching the 20lb mark!

Bogachiel:

Areas to fish:

  • Hatchery Drift
    Calawah Confluence - Drift and float fishing
    Tall Timbers - Drift fishing
    Cresent Hole - Plugs and floats
    Ice Box - Plugs and Drift fishing
    Hundley Flats - Drift fishing
    Mary Lou - Plugs and Drift fishing
    Goodman Mainline - Plunking

Note: Drifting in boat is considered, by some to be technical. Have fun and be safe! Tup:





Cascade River: Fish below the hatchery or up river from where it dumps into the Skagit. Plenty of bank access. Lots of hatchery steelhead are caught on this small river every year. Float/jig combo and light drift gear, small bait.



Elochoman River: Float/Jigs and bait are good choices here. When the water is up and dirty, drift fish eggs, otherwise your float/jig is most likely the best choice. Again down size your gear and bait.

Thanks for this!

Since this is here does anyone have a map with some of those spots labeled for the Snoqualmie. I scoped it out last weekend for a couple of hours and wasn't sure what I was looking at. Tokul Creek area is easy to find but I'm not sure where the "Big Eddy" is. Thanks!

To get to the Big Eddy/Tokul Creek access site, follow Highway 202 south from Redmond past Fall City and take Fish Hatchery Road.

From the Snoqualmie side, take the first left north of the falls, 372nd Ave.

There's actually a lot of area to fish if you willing to do a little hiking and exploring, its a great fishery which puts out a lot of fish every year.

Here's a couple of pictures I took up on the Cascade.
