Water up…water down…water up…

Filed under: Fishing Reports

The last few days, the water level has gone up and down a lot. The fishing, on the other hand, has stayed nothing less than fantastic. Landing lots of fish each day with others on. Our Steelhead fishery is amazing. Hopefully, the predicted rain will keep the river level up and the water temp. cool. We are looking forward to a couple more weeks of river fishing. We will start on the lake with regularity in about a week. Looking forward to those Brown Trout.

Incredible spring season

The river is still running at 1800 cfs, which is great for the fishing, but we are getting a little worn out from rowing in the big water. The fish are spread throughout the river and biting well. We have been spending our time in the top half from Altmar to Rt. 2A. Steelhead are being caught on plugs, eggs, beads and worms. We are finding more and more fish in the faster water every day. This makes landing them a challenge.

Great fishing…again.

Still 1800 cfs and rain today and tomorrow. The dropbacks (post spawn fish) are everywhere. We have been fishing the top half of the river each day (Altmar to Rt. 2A) with a lot of success. All the places where they should be, they are. The water temp. is now in the low 40’s, which means the fishing should stay consistant. As good as it is now, I can’t wait to see how it will be when they release the fish from the hatchery. They should do that this week.

Fishing is red hot!!!!!

The river is still running at 1800 cfs and the fish are jumpin’ all over the lures. Sorry for the lack of reports lately, the combination of a nasty virus, fishing every day and one computer being down, has made it a little difficult. The steelies are spread throughout the river and they are on the seams. Areas where fast and slow water meet. Some fish are still on gravel spawning also. We have been plug fishing with hot shots and Rapalas, but casting from shore with egg sacks or worms will also work. The Brown Trout fishing on the lake has been on fire also. The water from the Salmon River to the State boat launch in Mexico has been producing on days when the wind doesn’t blow too hard.

Lots of crome!!

Long time repeat customer David Chandler and his son cole fished the last two days with us, it was cole’s first steelhead trip. Out of the 14 steelies they landed, cole caught 9 of them, an outstanding accomplishment for a 13 year old or anybody for that matter!! River is 1800 cfs.
