California’s Smith River Has Steelhead Now

2020-05-08T12:28:45-07:00

By: Mick Thomas After no fall salmon season (due to no water) we’ve finally got some good news on the Smith River. The rain we’ve been waiting months for brought in a large number of fresh steelhead. Since we’ve received heavy rain the last few days the numbers of steelhead in the river have been [...]

Klamath River Salmon Update

2019-10-31T08:54:11-07:00

By: Mick Thomas The Klamath River is absolutely loaded with salmon right now. Unfortunately, we met the quota for adult Chinook September 12 and the Lower Klamath River is now open to possession of only jack salmon and hatchery steelhead. Meanwhile, it’s been a phenomenal run. It’s off the charts and there’s way more salmon [...]

Klamath River Estuary Fishing Well Now

2019-10-31T08:54:03-07:00

By: Mick Thomas It’s been a long time since fishing was this good on the Klamath River. I’m surprised how good it is. The numbers of salmon we’ve seen in the last month on the Klamath Estuary exceed anything we’ve seen in the last 15 years, and it’s just starting. I don’t even remember catching [...]

Steelhead Finally Trickling In – Nor Cal’s Smith River

2019-10-31T08:53:42-07:00

By: Mick Thomas Steelhead fishing on the Smith River is different every year. For some reason this year has been exceptionally slow to start.

It’s Salmon Season On California’s Smith River

2019-10-31T08:53:06-07:00

By: Mick Thomas There’s a lot of fish in the Smith River, but half of them have already come through the main stem. We’ve had some huge pushes of fish in the past few weeks. That first storm brought a massive number of fish in the system and then the second and third storm brought [...]

Big Steelhead Run Happening On Cali’s Smith River

2019-10-31T08:52:31-07:00

By: Mick Thomas We’ve had more steelhead come through the Smith River than you could shake a stick at this year. In fact, we’ve had one of the largest runs I’ve seen in decades. But, this is fairly common on high water years like we are having this year. A lot of times in dry [...]
