Most fish were caught in the section of the shore from the Lester to the Stewart. Water levels and clarity are fairly low and clear on the entire shore. Forecasts indicate nights will stay above freezing this week, and rain is forecast from Monday through Wednesday. If we get an inch or more of rain shorewide and stream temperatures stay above 40, we should see runs of fish shorewide.

Just wanted to say thanks to all the folks that run this website. I caught my first steelhead this Saturday at Goosebury - a 23" Kamloop that fought more like a 46" muskie. What an experience!!
Your tips and reports were critical to getting me set up. Thanks again!
Great news and glad to hear of your success! Feel free to send any pictures, we would be happy to post.
