Steelhead Update for the Situk River


A few fish were being caught last week before it got really cold. These fish were up above the bridge in some of the larger holes and in deep glides. The river dropped to low flow conditions and the temps plummeted late last week. Now as of 2-13-14 we have a foot or two of new snow. All roads to the river are probably not passable for this coming week at least. Things are warming up a bit and that may change. Snow machines are likely the only option for now.
