Low, clear water has slowed steelhead fishing on the Chetco and Rogue, and brought the action to a halt on the Elk and Sixes, reports Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing. “A few boats are still fishing the Chetco, but catch rates are poor,” said Martin. “Fishing above Ice Box Bridge requires dragging boats over shallow riffles.”
