Here is the latest steelhead report for the Upper Salmon River from Brent Beller with Idaho Fish & Game:

Steelhead angler effort on the upper Salmon River was low over the past week. The majority of angler effort was located downstream of North Fork in location code 15. No effort was observed downstream of the Middle Fork in location code 14, and only a few anglers were interviewed upstream of North Fork in location code 16. No interviewed anglers reported releasing a steelhead.

Currently, the Salmon River is flowing at 1,790 cfs through the town of Salmon, ID, which is 146% of average for today’s date. Water temperatures on Sunday were in the upper 40s, and the river’s visibility was clear.
