** After careful consideration, we have decided to cancel our 2021 Fall steelhead season on the Grande Rhonde and Klickitat Rivers. **
With 2021 being the lowest steelhead returns in recorded history, we have decided that guiding and adding extra pressure to this fishery is not in the best interest of the fish. It has been a very difficult decision to make with years of tradition chasing these amazing fish. If we truly care about the future of Columbia River steelhead then the best thing we all can do is take the season off.
The Klick is an amazing place located in the shadow of the Mount Adams volcanic cone in South Central Washington. The river sharply declines through rugged and beautiful canyons to join the mighty Columbia. Fed by glaciers, the fridge water can easily rise with a heavy rain or extremely warm temperatures but will quickly fall back into fishing shape.
The season opens in June and ends November 30. The height of the season begins in August while we consider September and October as the best steelhead months. Due to the location, a minimum of two days is recommended. Comfortable lodging is available in Goldendale. For the best all around experience, our overnight camp trip with 2 full days of fishing is the best way to go.
