TRASK RIVER: No reports of fall Chinook being caught in the lower Trask yet, but with fish present at Memaloose for the past several weeks they should be sneaking in anytime. Itll will probably take a good freshet to move them above the head of tide.
Summer steelhead fishing is slow. Water is low and clear, so concentrate effort in the early morning and late evening, and use lighter gear and small presentations to entice more bites. There are fish throughout the system.
Angling for cutthroat should be fair to good, sea-runs should be throughout the system. Try casting spinners or streamer flies in areas with cover, or dead drifting small presentations.
Due to a wetland restoration project between the tidewaters of the Trask and Wilson Rivers, public to the Hospital Hole on Trask tidewater is currently unavailable.
