Living in Pullman Washington puts us in a great location for many outdoor activities, including being within about 30 minutes to some of the best inland fishing. As I grew up in the Lewiston Clarkston Valley, I am personally partial to the confluence of the Snake River and the Clearwater River. And this time of the year the Steelhead are running.
The river is lined with people in boats trying their luck....and many along the banks fishing as well. There is an abundance of fish to be found including Trout & Bass, as well as a steelhead run and two Salmon runs as well.
Now I don't personally fish. I have never really caught the "bug"...no pun intended. But I know lots of people who do. And many of my closest friends love to fish.
My style is to sit on a chair and read a book, enjoying the peace and quiet. I find peace in looking at the sides of the hill and being near the water, most likely because it just feels like home. To the left is a picture that I look within the last few weeks during a steelhead outing with two very special friends of mine.
There are many outdoor supply stores in the area and they will have both all the licenses you might need, as well as tackle etc. So if you are visiting Pullman, make sure to bring your fishing gear!
