Winter steelhead season kicks off

Thanksgiving is the traditional “start” of the winter steelhead fishing on many coastal rivers. Rains and higher water levels will bring fish into the rivers but the best fishing will be when water levels start to drop.

Keep an eye on water levels and the weekly Recreation Report, and be ready to hit the water when conditions are right.
