New steelhead continue to move into the lower Chetco, but fishing is tough because of low, clear conditions according to Martin. “Flows are down to 305 cfs. A few boats a day are still drifting from Loeb to Social Security, and picking off a few steelhead at first light. The Rogue, Elk and Sixes are low, clear and slow for steelhead,” added Martin.
