The Skykomish river is a well known and popular river for all salmon species, and steelhead. It contains a number of boat launches and access points.
In this post I’ll cover the bank access points and boat launches.
The Skykomish combines with the Snoqualmie to form the Snohomish river. Even though the Snoqualmie gets its share of fish, the majority of all species head up the Skykomish.
It is a great river with various types of water for the fish to hold or travel in.
As with all locations I share, this is intended as starter locations. As you explore you’ll discover additional spots. During your adventures please respect private property and clean up after yourself.

Be safe in your fishing and hiking, and use this information and access spots at your own risk.
