WILSON RIVER: steelhead, cutthroat troutSummer steelhead are available throughout the system. These fish can be challenging to catch, but are great fighters and good table fair for those who are successful. The Wilson offers plenty of bank access, especially on the upper river. The river is low and clear, so fishing light tackle and early starts are keys to success in this fishery. Bobber fishing with jigs/bait/beads, casting lures, and drift fishing are great techniques to catch a summer steelhead.Trout fishing should be fair to good throughout the river. This time of year there can be some good opportunity for sea-run cutthroat in the upper tidewater and lower River. These are aggressive fish and fun fighters on light gear.
