The leaves are off the trees and the frost is on the windshield and the steelhead fishing on the PM River has clicked another notch. I wouldn’t say that it is great but certainly a solid “okay”, bordering on good.
I haven’t thrown anything but eggs but did work an outing recently with another guide that is top-notch when it comes to streamers. They had little success swinging but we got into fish on eggs. It looks like everything is late this fall so maybe the steelhead just aren’t off the egg bite yet.
The river is a little below average and getting pretty clear again.
