With recent rainfall and a shift in weather, the water temperature has dropped a couple degrees and the water has colored up a bit, which has encouraged some fish to move up river. Bay fishing has slowed, but should pick up again when the weather clears up.

Anglers reported catching a lot of jacks along with many adults downstream of Hwy 101. Most boating anglers are trolling some type of in line flasher with an anchovy. With rising water levels, some people have considered switching tactics to anchoring up and back-bouncing eggs. Anglers can expect fishing to only get better this fall. Coho have just started showing up.   

Steelhead fishing has been pretty consistent in the lower river. Anglers swinging flies or tossing spinners are having the best luck. 

The Huntley Seining Project is in full swing. Anglers can find the regularly updated Huntley Report here.

Current river flows are reported by the gage in Agness on the USGS website.
