Lewis River Fishing Trips

The Lewis River in Oregon is a little-known secret fishing paradise with healthy runs of fall salmon and winter steelhead. Take a trip on one of our Columbia River Fishing Guides sleds up the river for a chance to target these wonderful species of fish.

Lewis River Salmon Fishing

The Lewis River hosts three decent runs of salmon that enter the river every year. Spring chinook can be found as early as May and dies out in June, while the fall chinook and coho salmon season ramps up near the end of August and remains strong through October.

Lewis River Spring Chinook Fishing Trips

Ironically the Lewis isn’t very well known for Spring Chinook fishing. Decent numbers of these larger than life fish enter the river in early spring, but many anglers prefer to target them in the at the mouth in the Columbia. This is one of our favorite spots as well.

Lewis River Coho Fishing Trips

One of the things we love about the Lewis is that the Lewis River always seems to provide decent opportunities for catching Coho salmon. You’ll generally find lots of locals targeting this species every fall. Coho typically arrive in decent numbers in the month of September and run strong well into October. Coho move fast through the river system entering the lower river near

Lewis River Steelhead Fishing Trips

One of the main attractions for local anglers on the Lewis River is the healthy steelhead runs that provide excellent steelhead fishing throughout the year. Summer steelhead enter the Lewis in the early spring and run from May through June. The Lewis also offers a larger winter run of steelhead that provides anglers with excellent opportunities for steelhead fishing beginning in December and running through March, but the late winter runs tend to be wild steelhead and are catch and release only.
