Correct. The Steelhead have started in the streams, but they are still short on water. Fish are short on numbers. They need a few rain storms to pass through the area from the NW to bring more fish up the steams. Clear water makes for spooky, hard to catch fish. The snow did not help anything last weekend.
I was talking to the Orvis guide in that area last week.
I'm going up next week. I will post my results.
