Plenty of fresh steelhead are still being caught despite the low, clear conditions. The fish are holding in the deeper holes and slots, and guys fishing stealthy with bobbers, spinners or plugs are doing well. Flows were right around 500 cfs on Wednesday, but it looks like changes are coming. The rive is forecasted to rise to nearly 1,000 cfs late Sunday evening. If that happens, the fishing could bust wide-open.
