Definitely feeling like winter steelhead season is upon us, but it does not appear this week will be as cold as the predicted a few days ago.  The fishing has been good when conditions allow, and the cold is tolerable until it starts icing things up.  It does feel like there are a few more fish around this year.  During the coldest weather the lower Clearwater and the Snake will be the best options since they will have the warmest water.
