The 2009 Salmon River Steelhead run is the largest in about 30 years. We're all itching for sight fishing, but there's still lots of ice and the trout fishing's been keeping us occupied.
I just checked and there are already 74 fish in the Pahsimeroi hatchery and the Sawtooth hatchery doesn't open until this weekend. There have been fish lined up below the Sawtooth hatchery since December though, so I'm expecting great things.
Paddy's first Steelhead trip is this weekend and I hope to head up on Monday.
