The River is In Great Shape

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

by Kenny Priest

Not many fishing reports are coming out of the Smith, most anglers have moved on for the season. The river is in great shape, but that looks to change with the storms that will begin to hit the coast on Friday. The river will be big over the weekend, hitting 21,500 cfs on Friday night. These high flows should put the downers on the move and the fishing could be decent by next week. The Smith will remain open to fishing through April.
