If you want to reach the beautiful Lewis River quickly, this is your trail. In the spring and fall, ocean-running steelhead return en masse. Even if you don’t plan on fishing, we recommend bringing a pair of polarized sunglasses to help you peer into the swirling cold water and spot the big fish. Look for ripples as the fish lunge up from under big rocks to snatch insects off the surface of the river.
