Early return Sockeye is showing up in decent catchable numbers below the weir. There are still plenty of Steelheads left in the system, but most are now kelts heading back to the salt.
Water levels are up to today, as they were fairly low and water was crystal clear. Rain storms last night and today have the river on a sharp rise and the remaining steelhead will more than likely push further down in the system.
The early Sockeye are in great shape and full of fight. The rising water and high tides this week will continue to bring in good numbers of Sockeye and probably a few more stragglers from the Steelhead pool. The next 2 weeks will be great fishing for anyone looking to get on the water and have the river to themselves.
