This past week we have finally received a little rainfall. This rainfall was not enough to cause much of an increase in water flows. However I fear this rainfall is insignificant to keep water flows at consistent levels, unless we receive more rain soon. For now water flows remained consistent at 350 CFS
Looks like the salmon fishing has started to turn towards a positive. Late last week we had the first real run of salmon. Hopefully from this point, we well have study flows of fish.  The few salmon that has been in the river have started to spawn. Spawning activity is right on schedule,  hopefully the salmon biological time clock will keep the run moving along for the rest of the month. If at this point the salmon continue move into the river on a daily basis. We will have consistent fishing from top of the river to the bottom of the river. On the Salmon River, It takes approximately 3 to 4 days for a salmon to reach the lower flyfishing zone in the upper river. With this in mind we can often project where particular groups of salmon are located along the river.
The steelhead fishing continues to move along, way head of the normal. At this point one can expect to catch a steelhead or two in the fly zones, granted you are fishing the appropriate pools and runs. This is not to say steelhead fishing has become a guaranteed. For now the steelhead fishing is running ahead of the normal time schedule.
 Productive flies, for this week has been Black stoneflies, orange, pink egg flies, and of course the standard Willy buggers in black and silver, brown and copper, olive. This week we did our best in lowlight fishing conditions with pink estaz woolly buggers. The best size this week for willy bugger fishing is a size 6.

I still have prime dates available, In mid October16,17,18,21,22,24,25 for steelhead fishing on the Salmon River. I also have dates in November 20,21,22,23,24,26,28,29,30 available, this will be fishing for Lake run Brown Trout and steelhead.
