Cowlitz River Report- Summer Steelhead fishing rolls on.

cowlitz river fishing report 1According to Cowlitz River fishing guide, Greg Frogner, “steelhead fishing is doing just fine thank you.”  I caught up with Greg to talk about the success rates this year and according to Greg, not only has the fishing held up, but the crowds have stayed away as well.  Cowlitz River managers are expecting a return of about 12,500 summer steelhead and from the sounds of it, they may have hit their mark.

Many are beginning to turn their attention towards the Columbia River Salmon run and August should provide, those more interested in some steelhead fishing, some pretty good action.
