Satsop River Fishing Charter and Guide Service

The Satsop River

Satsop River - This river originating in Mason and Grays Harbor counties near the base of the Olympic mountains, boasts miles of flat and farm field stream side with dozens of long runs and flats just perfect for side drifting steelhead, with countless brush piles and slots limitless for the angler wishing to pull plugs or throw spinners for salmon. Once known as one of the best rivers in the state for both salmon and steelhead, the Satsop still offers ample opportunity for all species out of either a drift boat or jet boat.

The Satsop river is a tributary of the Chehalis river.  Located near the southern end of the Olympic Peninsula, the Satsop river travels South near the town of Elma, WA, where it joins the Chehalis river and passes by the town of Montesano before emptying into the Pacific Ocean.  Our Satsop fishing guides are experienced in helping you find the best spot to catch fish.

There are always fish to be caught on the Satsop river, 365 days a year. We fish for Steelhead on the Satsop from (December through April).

We fish Chinook, Coho and Chum salmon on the Satsop river all during the fall months (September - December) in either my jet sled or drift boat, using a variety of techniques including pulling plugs, twitching jigs, casting spinners or floating eggs.
