Clearwater River Steelhead Report!

We had a great day yesterday getting back to fishing at home on Idaho’s Clearwater River. Even with a down return the Clearwater is fishing very well and these fish are some of the most amazing that Mother Nature has to offer. Every fish we hooked yesterday took straight to the air. It’s really looking like we are going to have a fantastic year of fishing.

Our Regulations are a little different this year as we are allowed to keep up to two hatchery Steelhead, but they have to be under 28 inches to keep. While this really limits the number of keepers we will find it also has a major impact on fishing pressure and lets us have some fantastic fishing.

We have lots of open dates for both the Snake and Clearwater Rivers. Get in touch with us to get your trip set up. We work as employees of Reel Time Fishing for all Clearwater trips. Contact us for availability and info, but all payment will be made to Reel Time Fishing.

Clearwater River Steelhead Fishing Report 1/17/17

This past week we had a few days of really great fishing and a few days we struggled. The weather this past week was particularly brutal and the days we struggled we were ultimately just fighting the cold and wind.  Most of our fish this week were caught side drifting cured eggs and pegged corkies. We fish pegged corkies instead of beads as the rig seems to drift better than a hard plastic bead.  During the frigid temps we also like to back troll divers and Shrimp and plugs.  This give us a chance to slowly present our baits and keep ourselves warm by the heater.

With the weather improving drastically this week we should see some fantastic fishing. There are an absolute ton of fish in the Clearwater system and fishing should be very good now through March.  The last two weeks of  January and the first two weeks of February are my absolute favorite time to be fishing the Clearwater!  Out of all the 20+ fish days I have had 80% have happened during this time frame.   My boat has some openings over the next few weeks and we would love to get you out to see some of this fantastic fishing.

All our Clearwater trips are done as employees of Reel Time Fishing and all final booking will be done through Reel Time.  Give us a call or text at 208-861-0654 for availability.  For more information on the Clearwater River Steelhead fishing trips we offer click here!
