    I would be surprised if they were summer run steelies. With the rain salmon may be becoming more active in the river.........

    Tell me about it.

    I was out on the Sky until about 7:45 with a partner, and I fished the head of the hole, and he was downstream, when I looked downstream, I saw the most beautiful red sky, and he was in the middle of a cast, I almost wanted a poster size picture.

    I struck out. He, on the other hand, got a big nate steelie on the NF Sky, and a jack salmon just downstream of Proctor Creek.

    We did see a number of jumping fish at the NF/SF confluence hole, and not to mention a big mayfly hatch went off there, not that anyone was interested.

    I was out there until around 6:30 near Monroe. Caught zero, had one hit while stripping in line to make my next cast. It felt bigger than a smolt too... oh well. Saw a few salmon splashing around here and there.
