Flows: 2,500 cfs. 

Water clarity: Clear.

Steelhead fishing is slow, with anglers are averaging 0-1 fish per day.  There are a few early run fish in the system right now, but we need a good push of rain in order to really stir things up.

Fish are being caught dead-drifting beads between Hazel Avenue and Bradshaw Road.  Fish are holding in the deeper pockets, so you have to get down to them.

Don't forget, a nice hot lunch is always the best way to warm up during winter fishing season!
