Steelhead have officially started to show up in good numbers. Unlike last week, most rivers in the state have fishable numbers now. The rains brought in a fresh batch of fish, and with the dropping water, things are setting up nicely. Yes, there are still kings around, but they are basically done. The ones remaining are spawning, and will continue to do so for a couple weeks. Watch for the trout bite to improve as salmon spawning decreases, as each individual egg suddenly becomes more valuable when compared to 3 three weeks ago, when a trout could engorge itself daily...
