Steelhead usually arrive in the Salmon area in fishable numbers in the third week of October. Dam counts were low earlier, but now are a strong average. More important than numbers, in the Salmon area, is water temperature, which affects the migration. The river is cooling, which will stimulate fish to move upstream. We have a trip this week on the Lower Salmon, but expect to be a little early for steelhead, will spend more time on smallmouth bass. As our steelhead fishing approaches, I will provide frequent updates here. We have a fairly open calendar for our fall fishing at this point. Give us a call to hold a day.
