Humboldt’s Friday Fishing Report 12/11/2015
All of Humboldt Counties river systems are finally getting the rain they needed. The rivers are completely blown out which is great for the fish but greatly reduces anglers success rates along these rivers. Although it is possible to catch fish in these muddy waters, most anglers will wait for the water levels to recede and clear before targeting a Salmon or Steelhead. The Smith river is predicted to be the first to drop down to fish-able levels followed by the Chetco and Trinity later this week. Once the water levels drop to a more manageable level, fishing should be excellent along all of Humboldt river systems. Anglers looking to score on the earliest action should monitor the cfs levels for their window of opportunity.
