FLY FISHING WASHINGTON



What makes Washington such a good place to fly fish is the varied types of fish available. Washington is well known for steelhead and Salmon fishing especially in Skagit and Skykomish Rivers. Many variety of fish can be caught with a fly.

But there is also good Trout fishing and Steelhead fly-fishing. It is the fly-fishing for Steelhead that gets most people excited. The Steelhead runs are unforgettable, which increase the odds of hooking into one of these monsters.

The trout fishing throughout the state is also pretty solid. There seems to be an abundance of Rainbow and Cutthroats that keep the angler satisfied. Throw all of this together with the beautiful Cascade Mountains and you are sure to have a great experience.
