Fishing has continued to be good and hopefully this rain we’ve been getting (rain and snow at once at the moment) will bring in a big push of fresh spring steelhead. The water level is currently at 5350cfs and climbing.
Spring has sprung and the Steelhead fishing has been excellent. We have been getting great reports from just about everyone who has been in over the past few days. Drifting beads, jigs or nymphs under a bobber with conventional or centerpin gear (or an “indicator” with a fly rod) has produced a lot of fish, […]

There are still a lot of king salmon in the river. Steelhead and trout fishing have been very good when drifting egg flies, beads and nymphs behind the spawning salmon and some steelhead are also being caught on swung flies.
