Lewis River is a big river with a lot of fishing potential. The most impressive fact about the North Fork Lewis is that it’s one of very few Washington Rivers that has both a year-round steelhead season and a year-round salmon season. This is rare and something to look for when looking for year-around fishing for steelhead and salmon.
Lewis River has a historic reputation as one of Washington’s top spring chinook rivers; although the fishery has dropped off in recent years. April and May are the peak months, but springers are caught as early as February and as late as July. The most famous and most popular spring chinook spot on the entire river is the slow, deep pool at the Cedar Creek boat ramp.
