Cleawater and Snake River Weekend Creel Surveys 11/02/14

This past Saturday on the Clearwater was wet. It rained off and on most of the day. We are seeing more anglers fish from Orofino and up. Drift boats are dropping in at the Kooskia boat ramp or Button Beach and drifting down to Kamiah. This past week an angler caught a 18lb. Steelhead on the North Fork. Go to Steelhead Harvest Report and Coho Salmon Harvest Report for more details.  - Jaime Robertson, Fisheries Technician, Clearwater Region

Weekend Steelhead Creel Survey 10/14/14

Steelhead on Snake River, downriver of Salmon River, 2014

Most anglers in the Clearwater Region concentrated their effort on the Snake River downstream from the Salmon River (River sect 01) and on the Clearwater River up to Orofino Bridge (River sect. 03.)  For the few anglers fishing on the North Fork (River sect. 05) this past weekend, they used shrimp, scent, and roe for bait. A few anglers were using the wiggle wart lure. Go to Harvest Report for more details. - Jaime Robertson,  Fisheries Technician, Clearwater Region

Steelhead and Chinook Report in Cleawater 10/13/14

Clearwater Region Fall 2014

Anglers are spreading out to fish in the Clearwater region. 185 anglers were checked this past weekend on the Salmon and Little Salmon River. 60 steelhead were caught over the weekend with just under 19/hr catch rates on the Salmon and Little Salmon River.

Of the 178 anglers that were checked on river section 01 of the Snake River this past weekend 91 came out at Heller Bar. These anglers fished a total of 746 hours with 28 hatchery steelhead kept and 48 wild released. No hatchery steelhead were released. Catch rates were 10hrs. 74 of the steelhead anglers that were checked at Heller bar were on guided trips. Please keep in mind that these numbers are for Idaho steelhead anglers only and are unexpanded numbers.

Anglers that are fishing above Memorial Bridge on the Clearwater (river sect 03) are using a variety of lures. Some of the lures were Purple Peril, Black Fly, Lady Caroline Skunk, black & blue Table Fly, Skater Fly, Green butted Skunk, Gold Hair Wing, purple & black fly, Orange Hair Wing, and Rust Colored Fly. Anglers are also using yarn with scent and eggs.  - Jaime Robertson, Fisheries Technician, Clearwater Region
