The Mad has been the most consistent steelhead producer in Humboldt, and even that has been slow. Drift boats starting below the hatchery are seeing one to four adults per trip. The bank anglers are catching a few as well, but it’s not red hot. The river has been in good shape for the past week, but predicted to blow out on Wednesday. Storms are lined up into next week, so it will be quite a while before we see any green water.
