The past weekend (3/6, 3/7) produced excellent steelhead fishing in many of
the smaller tributaries. As the water clarity continues to improve fishing
should pick up in the main tributaries. Look for deeper pools to hold
newly arriving steelhead. Spawn sacs, jigs tipped with maggots, and flies
are popular deep pool presentations. In shallower areas with gravel
substrate and high current sucker spawn or brightly colored streamers work
best. Use caution in high current cold water situations.
