Fishing Report

Still Catching Steelhead

The river has dropped some, and cleared up quite a bit. We are still getting reports of fish being caught- one boat on Monday boated ten fish floating from Challis bridge to Pennal gulch. Reports from Deadman’s to Bayhorse have also been good, and even heard from one angler yesterday who had caught three fish at Ellis.

The angler fishing Ellis was using roe, and we are hearing that the fish are spawning now, so sight fishing has been productive. Drifting egg patterns or beads, or stripping big streamers in front of these fish should work very well right now.
