: WILSON RIVER: Spring Chinook fishing is fair but steady with some days better than others. Fish are being caught from tidewater up to the hatchery area. Gear restrictions are now in effect from the Cedar Creek boat slide down to the Lorens Drift wooden boat slide. An occasional summer steelhead is being caught. Fishing for cutthroat trout opened May 23, including in the north, south, and east forks.
