Dry weather, low flows, and lots of vegetation floating down river has put a damper on our late fall season but with some rain in the forecast, the flows might come up and a little color to the very clear water will help boost our production during our salmon and steelhead trips.  We're seeing some improvement in the numbers of salmon and steelhead caught now and today was pretty darn good giving us even more to look forward to the next 4 weeks and beyond.  We've been plug fishing for salmon and side drifting eggs for the steelhead and wild rainbows.  We have some availability now for December so if a fishing trip is on your list of things to do before the new year, give us a call and Jaynie can help get something set up for your party.  (530) 510-2925 thank you!
