Another batch of fresh steelhead moved into the Chetco over the weekend after flows got a slight bump from last week’s rain reports Martin. “Catch rates are still good on the lower river, mainly because few anglers are fishing. Local guides continue to find plenty of bright steelhead, including hatchery fish. More rain is coming next week. Steelhead and spring salmon fishing are slow on the Rogue. Flows are down to 2,300 cfs at Agness. Next week’s rain will likely bring the first schools of springers in as long as flows come up. Steelhead fishing remains slow on the Elk and Sixes,” added Martin.
