October 24, 2016: Some steelhead and lake run browns are here. Nymph fishing behind spawning fish produces nice browns and rainbows as well as steelhead. Tan caddis hatches continue in the parts of the river close to the dam. Swinging flies is working around the gravel areas and in some of the classic steelhead runs. There has been a lot of debris in the water in the form of leaves and grass so flashy patterns are recommended.
New Stuff: I have added a series of images to our photo website about the migration/life cycle of a steelhead. These are all images of fish in the wild. It can be viewed here.
