Angler effort on the upper Salmon River was low at the beginning of the week, but the combination of warm weather and the Thanksgiving holiday led to an increase in effort over Friday andSaturday. Unfortunately, the warm weather caused river conditions to deteriorate at the same time that effort increased. The only section that saw consistent effort over the week was downstream of North Fork in location code 15. Angler effort upstream of Salmon remained low. One bank angler reported harvesting a steelhead downstream of the Middle Fork in location code 14 which produced a harvest rate of 4 hours per steelhead kept. Upstream of the Middle Fork in location code 15, interviewed anglers averaged 11 hours per steelhead caught and 15 hours per steelhead kept. Interviewed anglers upstream of North Fork in location code 16 averaged 117 hours per steelhead caught or kept.
Currently, the Salmon River is flowing at 2,350 cfs through the town of Salmon, ID which is 188% of average for today’s date. River temperatures actually rose over the past week and were in the low 40s by Sunday. The river’s visibility has been improving since Saturday when the high flows peaked, but as of Sunday the visibility was still cloudy.
