On Saturday we had dry and mostly sunny conditions with the temperature reaching into the 50's. The release at the dam was 500cfs and is expected to be the same for Sunday along with rain in the forecast. The fishing pressure increased which is normal for this time of year especially on the weekend and the drop in water. At this point the majority of anglers were speaking with are looking for steelhead. We have steelhead spread out in the river but the mid to lower section of river has been producing some of the best action on a daily basis. For those anglers still looking for salmon the gravel areas in the upper section of river is your best bet. Some of the smaller local tributaries are also providing some action with a mix of kings and a few steelhead. For those anglers who are fly fishing the most productive patterns have been sucker spawn, estaz eggs, glo-bugs, flesh fly, egg sucking leeches and woolly buggers. For those anglers who are bottom bouncing or float fishing, pink and blue egg sacs, trout beads and pink worms have all produced results.
Monday - Saturday 6:00AM - 8:00PM.
Sunday 6:00AM - 7:00PM.
