Hello Steelheaders, We had a few good fishings days on the Smith after this last rain storm. Most of the fish went through on the high water. We are having to work for ones and twos. Today the River is under 9 feet and very clear. We have been Catching 2 fish per rod on the Chetco River. Remember we had rough seas for almost a month and know that the ocean is calm ,the Steelhead will start stacking up in the river and they will move up a little slower then on high water.
