This looks like a pretty fantastic trip for steelhead on Idaho’s Salmon River for the anglers of Wild Trout Productions. Check out these numbers:
One weekend in February 2015 on the Salmon River proved to be more than successful. Battling a 15 mph headwind and freezing eyelets all weekend was worth it; bringing in 28 to net with a good mix of wild and two-salt fish. All fish (wild, hatchery, big or small) were released based on a strict Catch & Release lifestyle. Steelhead in the Salmon River swim over 800 river miles to make it to their destination, and they deserve utmost respect regardless of whether or not they have an adipose.
