Smith River Salmon and Steelhead
The Smith River is California’s best overall salmon and steelhead stream. It holds the state record steelhead, a 27-pound, 4-ounce fish, and has produced countless kings over 50 pounds. The river record is an 86-pound king.
Guide Mick Thomas is well known for his ability to guide customers into these giant fish. Every year he guides customers into multiple salmon over 50 pounds and steelhead over 20 pounds.
Fishing on the Smith takes place in Mick’s heated aluminum drift boat. The drift down the Smith is the most scenic fishing experience available in California, as anglers make their way past giant redwoods and steep canyon walls.
Salmon fishing begins in October and continues well into December. Steelhead fishing begins in late November and continues through April.
Klamath River Salmon and Steelhead
The Klamath River often has the largest salmon run in all of California. Sometimes hundreds of thousands of salmon return to the river in the late summer and fall. Mick Thomas guides on the Klamath from his jet boat. Springers (spring salmon) are caught in May and June. Fall salmon are caught in August, September and October. In 2012, anglers can keep four kings a day.
Chetco River Salmon and Steelhead
The Chetco River in Southern Oregon is on the Pacific Northwest’s best salmon and steelhead streams. The river record steelhead weighed 28 pounds. The river record king was 65 pounds. Like the Smith, is steadily produces fish from October through March.
