Winter Steelhead Update

California's Smith River The fishing seems to be picking up a bit. Seems like we are a few weeks behind on the fish numbers up here on the North Umpqua. The fish are continuing to come over Winchester in good numbers, so it is only a matter of time before they show in the Flywater. We have been hooking fish each day, but we have definetily been working hard for'em.

I think our best fishing is still to come, I still have a few dates open in the next few weeks so if you'd like to do some fishing holler at me and we'll see what we can do.  Here are a few pics....
