Fishing conditions are good. Boat and bank anglers plunking with Spin-n-Glos and/or plugs have a good shot at landing a steelhead and could possibly get a crack at an early spring Chinook. Folks in boats looking to be a bit more mobile may want to also try bobber dogging, or side drifting techniques as they have also been productive in these water conditions. Anglers can only retain 1 wild steelhead a day and it must be 24 inches or larger. Wild Chinook must be released until June 1.
