Fishing for steelhead on the lower river was pretty good though angling pressure was very low. The river was pretty much ice-free and a good number of fish have already moved in from the lake. Anglers drifting spawn at Foote Dam are hooking some fish and those downstream are finding fish in typical, winter holding areas where the water is of moderate depth and slow. Hardware is working along with flies downstream.
Van Etten/Cedar Lake
The smaller lakes are frozen over now. Van Etten is doing great and has 8 – 10 inches of ice. Icefisherman are catching perch using crawlers. There are regular shanties out there so set yours up, be safe and have a good time!
