Matt Barthels reports on October 2: We are still seeing fewer salmon this year than what we are accustomed to. There are some fish around, but you are having to work for them. On the plus side steelhead are starting to make their way into the rivers. With the higher water temps they have been extremely difficult to hang on to. Top flies of late have been smaller peach colored eggs and buggers.
