The area is currently in a deep freeze. We have a record number of steelhead in tough and when things warm back up the fishing should be outstanding again. If you are swinging streamers during the winter months make sure to fish them low and slow. Make sure to not forget the eggs and nymphs during the winter months though.
The winter months make for a great time on the water. You will rarely see another fishermen, and the fish have been unpressured. A winter steelhead trip is a great way to get out of the house.
