Steelhead fishing is still pretty tough on the Smith according to Mike Coopman of Mike Coopman’s Guide Service. “As of Wednesday, there’s not any more fish in the river than last week, but they are starting to pile up in a few places. We’re getting a chance at two or three per day covering a lot of water. It looks like we’re going to get a good shot of rain over the next few days, so we should start to see more fish in the river,” Coopman added.
