Salmon River Steelhead Report - 2/20/17
Monday was colder then the last few days but we did have blue skies with plenty of sunshine and the temperature reached into the mid 30's. Very mild conditions are expected for the remainder of the week. We got mixed reports from anglers, some groups got into fish, while others did not. The anglers who did have some success said that they covered lots of water and worked hard for the fish they got. Anglers who are bottom bouncing or float fishing have had success with egg sacs and beads. The last couple of days we've had sunny conditions and anglers have reported lots of stoneflies crawling in the snow along the edge of the water. Anglers who are fly fishing have had success with black stoneflies and black hare's ear.
