Steelhead in the Future

Smith River - Smith River, CA (Del Norte County)

by Kenny Priest

It doesn’t look like the Smith will be fishable at least through the weekend reports guide Mike Coopman of Mike Coopman’s Guide Service. “If the rain falls as predicted, it will be sometime next week before we’re back on the water. There were quite a few salmon around before this big rise, and there may be a few around after, but it should mostly be a steelhead show from this point on,” Coopman added.
