Steelhead are beginning to arrive in the Salmon area. Fishing success will pick up very quickly as more fish reach this section of river. River temperature has dropped to the low 50s. The river is fairly clear, and pretty low for this time of year. There has still not been a hard frost, but cottonwoods are beginning to turn yellow. Deer and elk are trickling into their winter range. This is the beginning of the best month of the year.
