We have seen good numbers of steelhead move through the river over the past week or so and the rain we have been getting is pushing them in. The downside to that is the weather has gotten much colder and for people that don’t have rain gear it has been difficult to stay out for long periods of time, but those that are out have been giving us good reports as far as the number of hook-ups and average size of the fish. We have been hearing more and more about North and South Sandy and other tributaries of the river. Last week there were even some rainbows brought in near the ballpark and fresh salmon landed in Pineville so the river has been producing for those willing to brave the conditions.
Last night water was released and with runoff the river is running between 750 and 1,000 so if you’re thinking of going out be aware that you will need to use more caution to navigate the faster water until the flow drops back down.
The hot colors that have been working the more consistently have been alternating between pink and blue, with orange and chartreuse as backup options so be sure to come prepared and don’t be afraid to switch up your bait throughout the day.
Keep checking in for more updates or give us a call at any time between 5AM and 9PM all days of the week.
