Salmon River Fishing Report 12/3/2019

We are now officially into some steelhead weather. While reports have been slow, a lot of anglers were able to land some catches. Calm conditions on Sunday brought anglers out first thing in the morning. Most of them were out of the water in order to stay ahead of the coming storm. A reminder that the Upper Fly Zone is closed for the Winter and will reopen on April 1, 2020. However, the Lower Fly Zone is currently open. Anglers who were fly fishing were having luck dead drifting nymphs.
