Steelhead fishing on the upper Salmon River remained good last week. Angler effort dropped once again but was above average for late November. The majority of anglers were observed between the Middle Fork confluence and Salmon, in location codes 15 and 16. Interviewed anglers downstream of the Middle Fork in location code 14 did not report keeping any steelhead and averaged 27 hours per steelhead caught. Upstream of the Middle Fork in location code 15, interviewed anglers averaged 14 hours per steelhead caught and 22 hours per steelhead kept. Upstream of North Fork in location code 16, interviewed anglers averaged 14 hours per steelhead caught and 20 hours per steelhead kept. Anglers interviewed upstream of the Lemhi River in location code 17 did not report catching any steelhead.
Currently the Salmon River is flowing at 1,420 cfs through the town of Salmon which is 115% of average for today’s date. Water temperatures on Sunday were in the mid to upper 30s, and the river’s visibility was clear.
This will be the last upper Salmon River weekly steelhead report issued for the fall 2016 season.
