Fishing has been good for both steelhead and salmon, with steelhead on the up-swing and kings on the down-swing but still a lot around. The best steelhead fishing seems to be the middle section of the river (Rainbow to High Bridge) with some fishing moving in behind the spawning salmon.
Bob and Jim fished with me the last two days and we had a lot of wind the first day, making booning a little challenging but we were able to put fish in the boat. On Day 2, the weather and wind were nicer and the fish bit better with Bob and Jim winning a few battles and losing some. It was nice catching up with Bob Esbensen (a former USA Ice Fishing team member and NAIFC opponent) and getting to meet Jim.
