This past week most of the effort was above Cherry Lane Bridge on river section 03. Anglers fishing on the North Fork fished mainly on the bridge or on the wall with bobber set-ups.  River section 12 and 13 on the Salmon saw the most effort this past week.  Check the Harvest Report for more details. - Jaime Robertson, Fisheries Technician 2, Clearwater Region

Steelhead angler effort and catch rates were similar to the previous week on the upper Salmon River. The majority of anglers were observed fishing downstream of North Fork in location code 15. Effort upstream of North Fork was primarily from drift boat anglers. Effort continued to be low upstream of the Lemhi River in location code 17.

  • Anglers interviewed below the Middle Fork in location code 14 averaged 10 hours per steelhead caught and 17 hours per steelhead kept.
  • Anglers interviewed upstream of the Middle Fork in location code 15 averaged 14 hours per steelhead caught and 19 hours per steelhead kept.
  • Anglers interviewed upstream of North Fork in location code 16 averaged 21 hours per steelhead caught and 36 hours per steelhead kept.
  • No interviews were obtained from anglers fishing upstream of the Lemhi River in location code 17.

Currently, the Salmon River is flowing at 1,540 cfs through the town of Salmon, ID which is 119% of average for today’s date. River temperatures remained in the upper 30s throughout the weekend, and the river’s visibility was clear.  Check Harvest Report for more details. Brent Beller, Fisheries Technician II, Salmon Region
