The break in cold spring weather brought out a lot of anglers this weekend, with good efforts in sections 17 and 19 on the upper Salmon River. The Steelhead were not responding quickly to the bait with 10 hours per fish being common. Not to say others weren't having more luck though!
Fish and Game fishing reports show that the season is well on its way, and Steelhead were being caught in all sections.
The Pahsimeroi Hatchers is starting to see large numbers of steelhead moving into the traps. Friday March 23 saw approx 200 per day in the trap.
