May Focus

May is the month many steelheaders lay down the big stick and pick up the old five weight. In the Great Lakes, a few small pods of fish can be seen ghosting over the gravel. On most rivers, the show is over. On the West Coast however, a few systems have strong runs of early summer steelhead this time of the year, mainly, the lower tributaries of the Columbia and Willamette. Rivers like the Clackamas, the Sandy, the North Santiam, and the Cowlitz. There are other places in the West that pull fish in May, but Northern Oregon and Southern Washington are where it happens in the late spring.
