The waters are high and the clarity is stained. Some anglers have had luck with salmon eggs in the slack water pools. When the sun is shinning, Panther Martin silver spinners have had success. Peggy Bristol; from Wellington caught a 4 lb rainbow using night crawlers. The rive have not been planted due to high water conditions.For more information stop by Todd's Bait and Tackle.
