Steelhead and Smith River update is as follows: Pack your umbrellas and woolies, mates…the sky is falling!
Yes, Hiouchi and the Smith are racking up the rain as we speak. Check out this video, shot an hour ago from the bnb’s windswept deck
Continued rainfall is expected all day.
Postscript for anglers: bank fishermen who are game to plunk have the river to themselves today; if plunking is how you roll, and you have the gear to stay dry, come on up and claim your spot. A neighbor hooked (and lost) a 10-pounder on the point bar below the house late in the day yesterday.
Recall, Steelies tend to transit upstream in pods, sometimes as many as 50 to a group, so this could be the start of the run.
