Fishing Reports - July 18, 2018


The Joe is fishing very well for smallmouth. The fish are looking up and eating poppers pretty well. Don't forget your damsels either! The next month should be the best smallmouth fishing of the summer.

The pike rivers are also running a bit high and muddy right now. By mid-week we should be ready to hit them again.

We have a good number of summer run steelhead in the system! Make sure to leave these fish alone when the water is above 70 degrees. The tributaries are staying cold enough, but the main river is far too warm to fish for steelhead. Don't be afraid to fish aggressively with streamers this time of the year! These are the best fighting steelhead you will ever see!
