STEELHEADING -- Steelhead fishing on the Salmon River turned on recently and has been incredible the past week with lots of double digit days, reports Amy Sinclair of Exodus Wilderness Adventures based in Riggins, Idaho.

For the week of Oct. 23-30, she said her boats guided 91 anglers who hooked into 210 steelhead and landed 141.

The longest steelhead was 35 inches.

"Cooler fall nights and beautiful fall days have the current water level at 5,310 cfs and water temperature at 44 degrees," she said. "The river is clear with amazing visibility and the weather forecast for the week shows a chance of rain this weekend with cooler day and night temperatures throughout the week."
