The coastal rivers have been getting some much needed rain and the fisherman have been getting some much needed river therapy. We have been doing well and the Klamath, Smith, and Chetco look like they will fish through the weekend with the next rise predicted on Sunday. We have been getting fish on yarn, eggs, plugs, and flies with side drifting being the most productive technique. We have been getting 2 to 4 opportunities a day on the smith and chetco with most days ending with a couple of fish to hand.

The peak of the steelhead season is usually mid February and runs through March so you still have time to get your fishing trip in. I have 6 days left in March to book than this guide will be at the end of his line for the season. Don't be discouraged though I have brought on a couple of extra guides to help me make sure I can get people in a boat and on some fish.

My remaining dates are smith/chetco dates are 3/2, 3/3, and 3/4.

My remaining klamath dates are 3/25, 3/30, and 3/31.

If you want to fish in my boat you should get a hold of me soon, I have been getting a couple of calls a day and I'm sure my day's will be real quick. Visit my website Ironhead Guide Service to book your fishing adventure today and if your not completely satisfied with your trip you won't pay.
