Steelhead fishing conditions in the Salmon River

The Salmon River near Salmon remains ice-free, and steelhead fishermen are still on the river.  Today the river temperature is in the upper 30s.  Yesterday it was 40 degrees at mid-day.  Clarity is off a bit.  Right now I would consider it fishable, but if the river got much darker I probably wouldn’t bother to fish.

In mid-November we had O weather for several days, resulting in heavy flow of slush ice and a several-mile build-up of the Deadwater ice jam.  After that cold snap ended, the ice jam began to diminish and apparently has completely cut out–though I have not been down to see for myself.

There aren’t a lot of fishermen out in these short, chilly days, but there have been some stories of pretty good success.
