No recent fishing reports. River levels best for fishing are at or below 3,000 cfs, and the river is currently running around 9,800 cfs, which are difficult conditions at best. Water clarity is relatively good despite the high flows.

A few hatchery summer steelhead are still around. Fishing for hatchery steelhead is open year-round.
