Snoqualmie River Bank Access for Salmon and Steelhead

The Snoqualmie river is a slow moving river.  Along with its more popular sibling, the Skykomish, it forms the Snohomish river.

It gets its fair share of the salmon species, especially pinks and coho.

For tips, tricks and techniques on how to catch the various species check out these resources:

In this post I’ll go over access points which can be used to launch boats or fish from the bank.

  1. This is a great list, thank You! My personal favorite is McCormick Park in Duval for coho and steelhead in late September through early November when the run tapers off. Usually pretty quiet with plenty of bank access for fishing. There are some patches of veg that can snag you up, but it’s sand banks offer little rocks/logs which makes it a great location for spinner baits, jigs, and float rigs. Slow moving water that drops off just a few feet from the bank. Show up early and you’ll see huge fish jumping out of the water all over.
