The Smith is currently low and clear, holding at just under 8 feet on the Jed Smith gauge. The fishing remains tough and not a lot of boats are still trying. Most have moved to other rivers. The storm coming later in the week could, however, breathe new life into the river. It’s predicted to reach 10.5 feet early Saturday morning. If there’s fish still waiting to come in, this jump should do it. It will also bring down the freshly spawned fish out of the tributaries.
