The winter steelhead season is upon us and if we had any water right now, we would be experiencing some great early winter steelheading. The rains we had around Thanksgiving brought in our first push of winter chrome and fishing was good until the water became low and clear. It has now been almost a month since the last rains and has been by far the driest December I can remember. While there are some fish in many of our coastal rivers, they are either closed or too low and clear to successfully fish. The next series of storms we get are going to bring in a big push of fish on many of our systems and should offer some of the best winter steelheading of the season. At the moment, it looks like it is going to be sometime after the first of the year before things get going.
January and February are prime time winter steelheading on California’s North Coast. We have some prime dates available this winter. Call or email if you have any questions or for more details.
