No recent fishing reports. River levels best for fishing are at or below 3,000 cfs, and the river is currently running around 11,500 cfs at the gauge in Mehama. Flows will remain high due to rain in the forecast. There are very few fish available for harvest this time of year. The spring Chinook run is the next big opportunity for anglers and will start to show up in late April.Fishing for hatchery steelhead is open year-round. Trout season below Big Cliff dam closed on Nov. 1. Bait is not allowed from Nov. 1 through April 21. Any unclipped (wild) steelhead or trout that are caught must be released unharmed.
