Steelhead Creel Numbers for Weekend of 2/24/13

February 26, 2013 - 12:11pm -- idfg-vosborn

Catch rates were decent this week on most sections excluding the North Fork, while keep rates were not so great.  We saw the most effort upstream from Orofino Bridge with 10 hours to catch a fish and 25 hours to keep a fish. - Seth Crevison.
