Smith River steelhead fishing guides 01-24-2016.

Currently the Smith River is experiencing a nice push of fresh steelhead from recent rains.  The fishing has been great with many steelhead coming in from both the bank and the drift boats that have been plunking in the high water.  The best fishing looks to be coming this week as a new weather pattern is going to allow the  Smith River to drop to fishable levels.  It does look to be short lived though, as a new wet week lies ahead later this week looking to possibly blow the Smith River out by next weekend.  New chrome bright steelhead 6 to 12 pounds have been coming in daily as reported by Smith River steelhead fishing guide Dave Jacobs.  You should definitely call ahead before planning your fishing trip here as weather conditions change very quickly. Steelhead fishing here on the Smith river will continue to build for the rest of January and most of February.
