Stehekin is the east side entrance to North Cascades Park that starts 12 miles up the one lane road. The road currently ends just a mile and half into the Park.
Stehekin is unique for many reasons including its unsurpassed beauty, mountain peaks, wildlife, people, and unique historic community. There are no roads in or out. The only way to get to Stehekin is by boat, plane or a long hike.
The Stehekin River has rainbow trout, western slopes cutthroat trout, and a few brook trout. The river is a very unique fishery that holds some really big fish; we catch fish in the 20” range with a few up to about 24”. Washington State has been reintroducing western slope cutthroat for over 10 years now and we are catching some great cuts, some that weigh over 5 lb.
