Open Fall Steelhead Dates:

Jon Ray - Oct 12th

Sept 24nd, 2014


Joel with his first steelhead on the fly!

Well, this last week has felt more like Summer than Fall with bright sunny skies and temps in the 70's. No new salmon have showed up, but some staging fish have been hitting new reds here and there. With a bit of rain in the forecast this week and a good north wind, we should see a trickle of new fish late in the week. Fishing has been tough with slim numbers to target, but covering key water thuroughly has been paying off. There are small numbers of steelhead occupying tailouts and in and around reds so be on the lookout! A variety of flies have been working, with egg flies being the best for steelhead.

See ya out there,

Jon S.
