Don's Reel Time Guide Service on the Smith River in Crescent City California

Fish Reports

Date: December 8, 2013

Current Report:

Salmon fishing has ended on the Smith. We only had a handful of productive days in November due to lack of rain. December however is promising. Steelhead are in the river and the halfpounder action is very good. Conditions are improving with our recent rains. We're looking forward to a strong steelhead return over the next few months. There is still time to purchase your gift certificates in time for the Holidays.

Thanks, Don Vecchetti

Current Report:

The heavy rains allowed us to get an early start to our salmon season. Our first trip went fairly well, we landed 3 mint bright salmon all close to 20 pounds and had at least 4 more take downs. The salmon were all taking the kwik-fish aggressively. This is the earliest start in recent years. The greater number of fish should come after our next major rains.

Thanks, Don Vecchetti

Current Report:

We're waiting for the rains to kick off our salmon season on the Smith River. The ocean fishing was phenomenal with an abundance of fish. We're very excited, waiting for the fish to enter our local rivers. We typically get our first rains in October bringing the fish in as they start their journey. Book your trip early for your preferred dates and don't forget "gift certificates" are available for that trip of a lifetime.

Thanks, Don Vecchetti
