Steelhead angler effort continued to decline during the past week on the upper Salmon River, but catch rates remained the best they have been so far this season. The majority of anglers were observed downstream of North Fork in location code 15, but more anglers were also observed fishing upstream of the Lemhi River in location code 17. Anglers interviewed downstream of the Middle Fork Salmon River in location code 14 averaged 12 hours per steelhead caught, and anglers fishing downstream of North Fork in location code 15 averaged 24 hours per steelhead caught. Anglers fishing downstream of the Lemhi River in location code 16 averaged 22 hours per steelhead caught, and anglers fishing downstream of the Pahsimeroi River in location code 17 averaged 14 hours per steelhead caught.
River conditions remained stable throughout the week. The river’s visibility continued to slowly improve, and water temperatures were in the upper 30s over the weekend. Currently, the Salmon River through the town of Salmon, ID is flowing at 1,010 cfs which is 80% of average for today’s date.
