Spent about 2 hours bank fishing Snoqualmie river, nothing. Just felt a few light nibbles, should be them trout. Then, when I read through earlier reports on this website, I realized that this is a winter steelhead river! I flipped through the reports from past two years, all were made in the fall and winter, no reports for the summer at all! So it seems that nobody fishes this river in August. But, really, no salmon run in this river?

Long day of exploring yesterday. Haven't really spent much time on the Snoqualmie river in the past. Spent the entire day exploring different holes. Had a great day of exploring but not super productive on the catching aspect. I started the day a little lower on the Snoqualmie and worked my way towards the Tokul creek area. Had a few bites and actually had one on the hook near the mouth of the Tokul but didn't land it...0/1 for me. Tried all sorts of methods. Drifted eggs, floated a bead, floated a jig, drifted a spoon or two. Even got my fly rod out for a bit. Did see two fish caught. One was a nice buck on the Tokul (which I fished for about an hour and lost four hooks...not the type of fishing for me). The other was a small buck caught right next to me. Overall, a productive day of finding new places to try for Steelhead when I don't have as much time to get out and spend a whole day up on the Sky. Hopefully after this shot of rain we're having, we'll get a few more in.

With the Green closed to Coho, I used the opportunity to go check out the Snoqualmie. Hit the river at the Tolt mouth at 7am. Beautiful foggy morning. Lots of trout or smolt surfacing with a few salmon mixed in here and there. I pinched the barb on my jig and went to work. About 15 minutes later when my jig was nearly back to my feet it stopped dead then took off. Turned out to be a hooked-nose fall-red Coho buck about 5-6lbs. Played it for a few minutes in the shallows thinking I might try to take a pic, but it decided it had played enough and spit my jig out. Worked the area until 8a without any more action before heading off to work.
Glad I had the opportunity before they closed the river!

I live close to the Snoqualmie so fish it a lot. I have landed a lot of pinks over the last couple weeks and they were pretty spawned out. So I went out today to chinook bend near carnation to try to target some coho. I didn't catch any. I was a bit surprised to find a pile of about 8 salmon laying on the beach with there heads cut off. I'm not sure what species they are but they sure do not look like pinks. Some of them were 30 Inches long. I think possibly chinook or coho? I do not know why Some would do this. Could this be some act of poaching ? This river is already suffering and the Tokul creek had been shut down by the knuckle heads in Duvall. Any ideas on why someone would do this?

even a blind squirrel can find a nut once in a while...
I took this AM off to go fishing for Steelhead. Went to the Big Eddy at first light and waded out to the "island" Very windy, and upper 30's. About 10 others there. after about an hour and no fish caught by anyone, I was thinking I would be skunked again. Then after I had reeled in my cast, I lowered my rod and was was messing with my reel. I lifted my rod to cast and thought I was snagged right in front of me but I felt a tug, so I stepped back as I tried to set the hook, but fell backwards over a rock and was laying in 24 -30 inches of water. My waders filled up and I was soaked. I held my rod high and someone helped me up and I landed that fish. my boots were full of water and I was soaked, I fished for another hour until I was really cold. went to my car, took off my soaked pants and socks and sweatshirt and then put my waders back on and fished a few more hours.. I tried all the regular spots but caught nothing. I did not see any other fish caught in the river all morning 7- noon. most people left after trying a few hours. thanks for the hand warmers - Boyd?
next time I will bring a change of clothes

This report is 6 months late as I am new to this site. I had two good days This winter on the Snoqualmie river. This was a ever better day because the Seahawks beat the panthers in the playoffs later that day. It was a cold foggy morning and I was surround by fly fishermen in fall city by the bridge. I was casting my bobber and pink jig into were the clearer Raging mixes with the browner Snoqualmie river. After about a hour and a half I had two on the beach. They both put up a great fight. I've heard the spring/summer run in the Snoqualmie is not that great? Is this true?

Went out today on my last hoorah before the rains hit and having to go back to school. Hit big eddy and within an hour I hooked my first steelhead on a home-tied jig. Got her towards the bank and after tiring her out for a bit tried to drag her on the beach. Problem is I didn't keep my rod tip high enough and the fish turned putting her weight on the rod and evidently popped the hook. Watched it take a couple flops and swim away right before my eyes... Depressing I know but its better than nothing! Making sure not to leave the net in the truck next time.

What is it about steelhead fishing reports that make me want to write a poem (Ryan Hung)? After hitting my first local steelhead with reel priorities guide Ryan, I was hooked and back at the river the next morning. Only this time alone. I tied on my home made jig and got all set up the night before. I arrived at the river at 7am and waited til it was just light enough to see my float on the water. I hit a few holes with nothing happening other than most likely hitting bottom once or twice for a float down. I was cold and tired of having to chip away ice forming in my rod guides but I was determined to hit one last hole before I called it a day. My first cast was perfectly placed in the slot and was one of those perfect floats that you just feel something should happen. It was so perfectly placed that at the end of the run I decided to just let it keep going and going. With a bunch of line out, my float disappeared. I set the hook and was back into a steelhead for my second time. I think the fish was cold because she didnt put up too much of a fight but it was fantastic none the less. A beautiful hatchery hen that I kept in the water and released successfully. Theres no greater feeling for me than catching such a gorgeous fish (with my own hand made jig) and watching it swim away. I think its safe to say I'm hooked on steelheading!

Again this a 6 month late report as I'm new to this site. This was my other great day on the Snoqualmie river. This was my first steelhead on this river. I was trying to avoid the crowds at the big eddy and down at fall city so I drove up SE David Powel road. I pulled of to a small little beach spot right off the road. This spot is us down river and opposite side of where everyone fishes big eddy. This was pretty fast moving water except about a 10ft wide by 30ft long slow spot right off this little beach. Looked like a great resting area. I tried everything . Was about to head out when i reached for a hot pink wee duck nite. Castes out and let it drift down with the current then started a super slow retrieve and slammed my pole so hard. I was not using the greatest pole so it was a crazy fight. In the photo the fish looks dark but it really wasn't too bad. Hope next winter is a good return as well

Had a free afternoon and I was up north today so I decided to take a quick afternoon trip to fish the Snoqualmie for the first time. Basically started out at Tokul creek and after about 30 minutes I decided it really wasn't my thing so I headed over to fish the big eddy. After about 10 minutes I hooked into a nice hatchery buck that was a bit colored but still cut plenty good. Overall the fishing was pretty slow and only the guy next two me had any bites as he went 1 for 3.

Pictures on my phone but I'll try and get them uploaded later.
