Humboldt’s Friday Fishing Report 2/19/2016
Smith – The Smith was in need of fresh water and received just that over the past few days. This new push of water should get some fresh fish into the river system as well as push spawned-out fish back down the river. Fishing should be hot for the next week.
Trinity – The Trinity has been fishing steady and should also benefit from the recent storm. Fishing is expected to improve as the fresh water enters the Trinity river.
Eel/South Fork -The main stem of the Eel river is too muddy to fish and should remain so until late next week. The South Fork has been producing and was in need of an influx of fresh water. Hopefully conditions will be fishable on the South Fork by the middle of next week.
Mad – The Mad river received a good amount of water into the river system which should entice some fresh fish to enter the Mad river as well as push spawned-out fish back into the main river system.
