Here is the latest steelhead fishing report for the Upper Salmon River from Idaho Fish & Game Fisheries Technician, Brent Beller:

Steelhead fishing on the upper Salmon River improved over the past week, but effort remained low for this point in the season. Interviewed anglers downstream of North Fork in location code 15 averaged 29 hours per steelhead caught and 108 hours per steelhead kept. Interviewed anglers upstream of North Fork in location code 16 averaged 72 hours per steelhead caught and did not report harvesting a steelhead. No interviews were obtained upstream of the Lemhi River in location code 17.

Currently the Salmon River is flowing at 1,760 cfs which is 135% of average for today’s date. Water temperatures on Sunday were in the mid-40s, and the river’s visibility was clear.
