Salmon Season is a Wrap, Steelhead on the Way
Fishing last week on the Smith was pretty tough, as salmon numbers are finally dwindling down. I was also able to make it out on the Chetco and there were still decent numbers of fish around there, but rain kept the fishability of that river unpredictable. After our most recent storm, I expect salmon there to be just about done as well.
Due to a tough outlook on salmon prospects for the remainder of my schedule, I canceled the last few days of my season. I will be off until just after Christmas, when I start winter steelhead fishing. In the meantime, I will spend some much needed time with my family for the holidays.
Fishable numbers of steelhead should be in the rivers after the next rise in river levels. My winter calendar is getting pretty busy and If you are thinking about booking a day, give me a call sooner than later.
I hope you all enjoy your holidays and I look forward to seeing you on the river for some winter steel!!
