What to Expect in June
How to use this section.
By late June, the Kalama should be doing well: summer steelheading will be in full swing and the salmon anglers will have left. Ply the lower five miles with the usual summer steelhead patterns: Green Butt Skunks, Freight Trains, Purple Perils, etc. Some anglers feel that a fly with a bit of green or red works best. Size 4-8 patterns are the best choice. Look for classic summer steelhead water: a fast riffle with water that deepens and slows below it; fish the slower water as long as it moves at the pace of a walk.
