Tieton River Fishing

Species: Rainbow Trout, Whitefish

Campgrounds along White Pass Scenic Byway US Hwy 12 provide easy public access. The Tieton River begins in the Goat Rocks Wilderness area in two forks, the North Fork Tieton and the South Fork Tieton Rivers and eventually joins the Naches River. Fish for rainbows and whitefish, with whitefish angling best during the special whitefish-only winter season. The Bureau of Reclamation’s irrigation water management results in high flows and unfishable conditions from early September to late October.
