Anglers have reported catching some steelhead in the Imnaha River, and trout fishing is also open. Fishing for steelhead will probably improve over the next two months as hatchery steelhead make their way upriver from the Snake River. Fishing in Big Sheep Creek will also improve as the season progresses.

Anglers are reminded that bull trout may be encountered in the fishery and must be released unharmed. Anglers that hike down the Imnaha River and fish for steelhead in the Snake River must use barbless hooks when fishing for steelhead in the Snake River. Additionally, anglers fishing for steelhead in the Snake River need to be aware that the daily limit for steelhead in the Snake River is two hatchery steelhead this spring.
