When October rolls around it is Steelhead Time. This is casting with spawn and beads for the most part , but we do get the plugs out later in the season. I plan to fish this year untill deer season which is Nov.15.
Now is a good time to book for a late summer or fall salmon trip, some dates in August and September are still open. Salmon numbers were down last year but there was still lots of fun to be had! This is and has always been my favorite fishing on the river.
Typically where I fish , about halfway between the dam and the lake the best fishing is late feb. thru March. In April we get some great fishing for dropbacks, post spawn fish returning to the lake. There is some spawning activity in the areas we fish, but most of the gravel is near the dam and so are the people!
Been raining here most of the day, almost an inch so far. Most of our fish have come on Ping a Tees, although spawn and sticks are working. With a rise in the water, conditions will improve. It has been a long step from the dock down to the boat.
