What to Expect in August

How to use this section.

The lower five miles of the river--from the Red Barn Hole on down to the mouth--is the most popular section, but you can find hatchery fish throughout the river.

Fish during morning and evening hours and focus on runs near fast, aerated water, pools, or places that offer shelter and security, such as near rocks, ledges, logs, and high banks. Approach fish with care; steelhead will be spooky when the water is low and clear. If a rainy spell comes along, hit the river a couple of days after the rain stops.

A few early coho salmon may enter the river near the end of the month, but most of the Kalama's coho arrive in two spurts: the first week and a half of September and early October.
