Sea-run cutthroat should be available in tidewater areas, and will begin to move upstream over the next few weeks. Concentrate on early morning and late evening when temperatures are cooler for the best results. Warm water temperatures can stress fish and increase hooking mortality, so anglers are encouraged to avoid catch-and-release fishing during the heat of the day. The river is restricted to artificial lures and flies above tidewater until Aug. 31, so check the regulations before you go.

The Kilchis can get a few stray spring Chinook or summer steelhead, but both will be in very low numbers.
