Steelhead





We have already started to catch Steelhead the last few days. This is early for Steelhead. Generally speaking, on the Salmon River Steelhead start to show up and decent numbers by mid October. Hopefully, this is a good sign of things to come, and help to confirm some of the positive reports that I've been receiving from the lake fishermen.
We have been catching Steelhead when fishing for Coho Salmon. Steelhead and Coho Salmon always like to run together. So, this means that we are catching Steelhead with a wide variety of flies.
Fall is when the Steelhead are at their best. Chrome fresh from the lake, they are as strong as they are going to be. Several months from spawning and good fall water temperatures, Steelhead at this time of year are very receptive to a fly. Fall Steelhead fishing is Steelhead fishing at its best.
The Salmon river water temperature has been in the warm side the last few days. By mid week we should be getting some cooler weather and rain. This turn in the weather should improve the fishing. The Salmon are overdo for another good run of Chinook Salmon. Hopefully the cooler weather will trigger a run of Salmon and maybe a few Steelhead.
Note: I still have some days available in mid October for fall Steelhead fishing. You can contact me through the fly shop, the number is 585-352-4775 or you may try contacting me on my cell phone number is 585-233-0436. Service along the river is poor. If I do not answer, leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
