Humboldt’s Friday Fishing Report 12/4/2015
Smith – This recent storm has provided a much needed boost of fresh water which should entice the fish to make their way up the river system. As Salmon fishing on the rivers begins to dwindle we hope for one last good push of bright Salmon with the sustained rise in water levels. Fishing should be great this weekend with an expected push of winter Steelhead.
Trinity – The focus of most anglers on the Trinity river has been Steelhead fishing. Most fish were holding up in deeper holes this past week but with the new influx of rain the Steelhead have moved to shallower water. Most boats are averaging 1-2 Steelhead per rod and those numbers should only improve throughout the week.
Mad – The Mad river is open as of Friday morning and should provide anglers a great opportunity for a fresh winter Steelhead. Be sure to check the Low Flow Hotline for up to date information on river openings and closures.
Eel – As of Friday morning the main stem, the south fork and the middle fork of the Eel river is open. This push of water was drastically needed for the health and sustainability of our Salmon and Steelhead stock in The Eel river systems. .
