Fishing Report

Salmon River Steelhead Fishing

Winter seemed to have forgotten us this year… Deadwater has broke, the river is flowing clear and steelhead are being caught. Most of the reports are from Pahsimeroi down river, but there have been some fish caught just upstream of town. Half-fast casting spoons have been very effective, as well as bait shrimp and drifting black flies. Today and tomorrow are going to continue to be warm which may cloud up the river a bit, but by Monday the temperatures will come down a bit, just enough to clear the water up and keep it nice and fishable. Be sure to call the store for current river conditions before you head out.
