White River
« on: June 21, 2021, 02:25:24 AM »
Does anyone know if the White River is a good fishery? It feeds Lake Wenatchee, but haven't really seen anything if its good to fish or not. Looks like they have done a ton of work on Salmon and Steelhead habitat!

Just curious is anyone has fished/had any success up there.

I thought it was closed to fishing for salmon/steelhead but I could be wrong. I know the trout fishing is not all that great.

Regs read "from mouth to White River Falls and tributaries, except Napeequa River
All species CLOSED WATERS."

That whole main basin has been about shut down with esa based closures.

It may be changing, but I have lived within a few miles of the White my entire life. No one fishes it. Itís really silty and I am told fish struggle to survive.

I have heard an old timer or two say it was pretty good steelhead fishing 60+ years ago.

Wrong white river I believe.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

 :yeah: Ironically "No one fishes it. Itís really silty and I am told fish struggle to survive" actually still applies.

Thank you for the information! I was looking up and down the regs and researching and couldn't find anything about it. Couldn't even find a video of people fishing it. Thank you all!

I fished the Napeequa but no luck. I ran into a guy that fished White river below Boulder Pass trail, he was catching pan size trout. Steelhead and Salmon can't make it up that far due to the falls at the TH I believe
