Upper Salmon River Weekend Steelhead Summary 3/17/12

March 25, 2012 - 2:30pm -- idfg-vosborn

Fishing this previous weekend was pretty slow with the exception of two locations. The narrows downstream of Shoup continued to produce fish, and anglers near the mouth of the Yankee Fork also started catching them at a pretty good rate. Unfortunately, the rest of the river was not as kind to anglers. The poor weather during the weekend definitely affected the amount of anglers that were out. It possibly could have affected the steelhead, as well. The precipitation that we received caused the river to cloud up a little and rise a noticeable amount. Hopefully with some better weather, the river conditions will stabilize and fishing next weekend will improve.   - Brent Beller
