Rivers North Fishing Report

An early taste of Winter-Steelheader’s delight!

October 27th, 2008

Steelhead numbers have increased with the recent precip & dropping water temps!  Water temps are currently in the mid to lower 40’s depending upon river system-precipation in the forms of both rain & snow has added a bit more water to the streams which has a few more Steelhead midgrating upstream.  Well placed drifts & good technique has paid dividends in the form of chrome-there is some damn nice Steelhead around this Fall.  A few fish over the 10 lb mark already & the average has been around 8 lbs-this is much larger than we are traditionally used to.  I cannot say enough good things about fall Steelhead-a special fish that can humble even the most seasoned fly angler in mere seconds.

Hook up & hold on- Fall Steel!!
