Fresh Fish Daily - Trend so Far!

A good start to Winter Steelhead Season brings the New Year In....

Jan 1 2015

Happy New Year everyone!

Fish wishes look good for the season based on the trend so far. 

Each day we have been encountering at least 5-8 opportunities per outing.  If you can make each one stick that is incredible fishing. Best we have seen in years.

River conditions are ideal in both the upper and the lower.  Anglers are encountering nice fish in all sections of the river now.  Good school holding in Stamp Falls pool, fresh fish in the lower, middle and upper. 

With some rain in the forecast this will continue to hold for good conditions. The snow in the forecast has changed to rains light to moderate.

See the weather report and river levels graph below.

Chromer on New Years Eve!   One of many this fine day!

The river conditions graphs below are generated from the upper system near Robertson Creek Hatchery. The lower system is generally higher and has more color, however this data is still very useful as it will indicate the trend.  The Stamp Falls data system was wiped out with the past flood and not hearing of any immediate plans for replacement.

Call us anytime for the latest conditions! We enjoy helping anglers plan their trips with or without guides.
