EEL RIVER

The Eel River mouth is located 15 miles south of Eureka. The Eel flows through some of the most beautiful redwood groves in the state, including Humboldt Redwood State Park. When the Eel is running right, its emerald green color is awe inspiring.  Winter steelhead are what the Eel River is known for. The winter steelhead start moving into the river in November running through March, with peak activity during January. The average Eel steelhead runs 8-10 lbs, with fish to 16lbs common and a number of fish in the 20lb class caught each year. The entire system - the Eel, the South fork of the Eel, and the Van Duzen River-provides excellent opportunities for winter steelhead.  This is a catch and release fishery.
