News For 2017: I am going to hold off guiding the trout season here again this summer.
For three reasons one; the fires and the floods the last few years have devastated the LOCAL resident populations of trout in stretches below Beaver creek and I feel they need to be left alone for a while. Two; the upper stretches that still have good populations wont be needing additional pressure from anglers, I don’t want to be part of condensed angling if I can help it. Compounded pressure on healthy stocks is not good and happens enough when we have WDFW closures. Three; With upper Columbia ESA listed wild steelhead fighting to return from poor ocean survival and drought it again would not be ecologically sound to expose additional harm of indecently catching immature wild steelhead with dry flies.
The Methow River is a world class steelhead river, but did you know that it is also an awesome trout river? “The Met” as we call it, has the largest trout of any float-able river in Washington State. I have seen bull trout over 20 pounds and Cutt-Bows in the seven pound range. The Methow is a very diverse river that brings all the regular insect life with an addition of large runs of salmon that provide huge amounts of food for the resident trout population.
With some of the state’s best hopper fishing and world class sized cutthroats, The Methow River is at the top of my list for adventure angling in Washington State. The Methow is free of any flood control dams; hence the area has a natural spring snow run-off and is dependent on that for angling timing. For best results, we begin fishing it at or around 2500 cfs. and this typically begins in July on an average year. However, don’t wait for the water – book your trip ahead of time and we can adapt at the time of your booking should we need to. See below for our outline of Methow River trout fishing options and call 253-307-3210 if you have any questions.
