Steelhead


► If the river is fishable but still somewhat silty, you'll probably find steelhead in slightly slower water than usual and along the edges. That's how they reduce the amount of silt that passes through their gills. Use large, dark flies to counteract the murky water.

► Cooler weather after mid-month should reduce the amount of glacial silt coming down the Sandy. Summer steelheading could improve at that time.

► Use traditional tactics and standard summer steelhead swinging flies.

General


► Coho salmon should start to arrive in late September.
