Was upper river yesterday Apr 9 checking out a few holes and tried Canal as well before heading home but to no avail. I should probably try a blade or spinner on my next outing. Just wondering, has anyone used Dick Nites for steelies? Thinking of trying it out for fly with a sink tip. The river's running gin-clear and can't wait for rain...

Any opinions on what the river is going to be like tomorrow? Wondering if tomorrow or Friday is a better bet.

hopefully someone can give me an idea in the morning what the shape of the vis is . I was out on wed and the water was perfect even though it had come up.
Guess that was snow melt. hoping the clay banks hold for fri. Managed to land 2 wilds, and saw some others having some luck as well.

It was mud today, maybe the season is over as the freshet will be kicking into high gear with the coming warm weather.

It has been a good steelhead season, I think most will agree.
