Reel Deal: Fishing 'til the end

Steelhead fishing is still going strong on the Smith River, with guides expecting good fishing conditions through the end of the season April 30. The ocean salmon sport season south of Horse Mountain will began Saturday April 5, and in-river spring salmon are being caught in decent numbers on the lower Rogue River.

Cody Gardner, of Crescent City, caught what he called a “legendary” buck with unique coloring on the South Fork Smith River using a 3/4 oz. cleo, one of eight steelhead he caught that day.
