It has been some time since my last up dated.  It has been a long winter, but we are back to fishing. Because the winter has been what it is the spring steelhead run is running about two weeks behind schedule.  The sown run off is finally coming there and the water temperatures will be coming up. The Salmon River water flows are starting to climb, for now the flow is 1200 CFS. But there is a lot of sown to run off. The water flow will be going up over the next few weeks. I have been able to do some winter fishing on the salmon. When I was able get on the water the fishing has been very good. There appears to be good numbers of fish that are running in the Salmon River, waiting to spawn. Looks like the spring steelhead fishing is going to be good right in to mid-May.

For now I am fishing the Western New York trips. Even here we are still waiting on water flows and temperatures to improve. However this will not tack long to improve, we are finally fishing of once again.  Here to, in the Western trips I am seeing decent numbers of steelhead. The smaller area creeks recently have been very productive when water conditions allow. For now the fly we are using, are egg flies, wooly buggers and big streamers, all in your favorite colors. Spring steelhead fishing conditions can and will change quickly. So be prepared for a wide variety of conditions when you head out.


Because of the cold spring we are going to have some excellent steelhead fishing into the month of May. I still have plenty of prime dates for May. This will be an ideal time to swing flies for steelhead. If you're interested in getting a head start with two handed rods or would like to swing some flies for steelhead, feel free to contact me.
