Paul and I slipped out for an afternoon on the water, and we were not disappointed. Fishing seems to be just as good as it was when I put the boat in drydock. We landed a number of fresher looking steelhead, and Paul caught a couple of dandy post spawn browns.
Steelhead are spread throughout the system, with the concentration being the highest in the upper stretches towards the dam. Water levels are up a little for this time of year and perfect for fishing. With the forcast calling for above average temperatures, fishing opportunities should be plentiful throughout February.
