From the beginning of June until the end of September the Klickitat River is an optimal location to catch salmon and steelhead. The fast flowing, glacier fed river is a tributary of the Columbia River and runs through the eastern slopes of the Cascade Range in Washington. The dense forest on the hillsides of the steep river gorge create a unique environment for a day of fly fishing, and the torrent chute upstream from Lyle is an ideal place to catch fish as they struggle to swim against the strong currents of the river. Fish for Spring Chinook Salmon (King) in June, and for Fall Run Chinook and Silver Salmon (Coho) in late August to October.
