The numbers of steelhead coming over The Dalles Dam will grow from recent August counts of 400
fish per day to 7,000+ fish per day as the days pass into September. The counts on Chinook and
Coho salmon will climb rapidly as August dwindles and the prime steelhead and salmon fishing
season comes with the days of September, October and early November.
Guided Fishing Trips on the Columbia River
Chinook caught off the mouth of the Deschutes River
during August and September run from 25 to 40 pounds
with occasional fish running bigger. The prime steelhead
and salmon season is upon us!
The best steelhead and salmon fishing the Columbia is
ongoing and will continue through October and into early
November. The renowned “upriver brights” are the huge
Chinook that crowd the river during the fall of the year.
Too, the 8 to 10 pound steelhead caught during August
will morph into 15 to 25 pound trophy class, “B-run” fish as
September edges into October.
