Tailwater lodge fishing calendar for the Salmon River

The Salmon River is famous for epic fall runs of chinook (king) and coho salmon. From September through November, anglers show up to try their hand at taming some of the largest and most powerful freshwater fish in North America. King salmon on this stretch of the Salmon River range up to 30 pounds, with a large number of fish over 20 pounds!

Typical fish caught on the Salmon River

When the king and coho salmon begin to spawn its time for the polished chrome steelhead to begin entering the river. These fish, known for acrobatic displays, attract anglers from all over the world. Few other fish have the allure of steelhead, anglers are passionate about trying to land one of these trophies. Steelhead season lasts from October until late spring, when the fish drop back to the lake after spawning. Summer-run steelhead show up around June, and are most abundant after heavy rains.

The Salmon River might be known for salmonoids, but the summer months bring exceptional opportunities to catch smallmouth bass. In the summer you are likely to have large stretches of water all to yourself while casting to 3-5lb bass. To preserve this great fishery, the Tailwater Lodge asks all of its anglers to practice catch and release on all bass and trout species when fishing on the property.

Tailwater Lounge

After a long day of fishing, what could be better than enjoying the finest food and lodging on the river. The Tailwater Bar and Restaurant serves thoughtfully prepared seafood dishes and satisfying comfort-food favorites for dinner. Of course there is a delectable selection of desserts! Rooms at the Tailwater Lodge are designed for comfort and relaxation. From luxurious bedding to spa-like baths, our attention to detail will leave you energized and refreshed — and ready for whatever adventures the next day has in store!
