Steelhead fishing has picked up North of the town of Salmon. It’s not going to be as strong of a run as originally projected, but the fish are definitely larger due to there being 2-year + fish running this year. So far, we have heard that there are fish being caught up to 34 inches. Best colors are black, purple and darker colors. If you are spin-fishing you can try spoons and spinner,s like Mepps Flying J’s, Blue Fox, Stee-lee’s and K.O.Wobbler’s. For the fisherman using floats or bottom bouncing, popular lures are Mad River Steelhead Worms, AeroJigs, and Berkley Power Leeches. Now is the time to try your luck, and we are here to help. We have a full line of fly fishing and conventional gear for steelhead fishing to help you have a great day of steelhead fishing. Stop by or call 208-879-2500 We can ship if needed.
