Smith River

Rating - Fair   

Friday, Feb 03 2023
The Smith was sitting at just above 7 feet at the Jed Smith gauge as of Thursday. The river is low, clear and snaggy. The boat pressure has been light as most guides have moved to other rivers. Its forecast to receive a much-needed bump in flows beginning Sunday morning. Predicted to peak at 11.5 feet Sunday night, which should make conditions excellent next week. Hopefully this will bring in some fresh fish.-Fishing the North Coast with Kenny priest
