Salmon River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Rainbow Trout:
* Nothing really to speak of, surface water is getting close to freezing or is freezing. Waiting for warmer temperatures.
Steelhead
* Extremely low, few steelhead kept, but there are some. Green and yellow chrome hot shots are our go-to this time of year. If you can break through the ice.
Salmon
* see you in the spring

Seven-day forecast 

Returned to colder temperatures this week. A little luck on the surface, but deeper eddies are better. Snow and rain have suppressed some premature hatches, so back to the bottom bugs.
