The steelhead fishing this past weekend on the upper Salmon River picked up slightly over the previous week. The majority of anglers were found in section 19, near the Sunbeam Dam area or in section 17, near the mouth of the Pahsimeroi River. Minimal angler effort was observed in section 18.  Anglers in section 17 had an average catch rate of 14 hours per steelhead, while in section 18, the catch rate was 4 hours per steelhead.  In section 19, anglers averaged 12 hours per steelhead and reported 47 steelhead caught.  - Brent Beller, Salmon Region Fisheries Technician
