Smith River Steelhead Fishing
with Pro Guide Kevin Brock

Smith River Steelhead FishingWe start off the year on the scenic Smith River. Enjoy the beautiful scenery of the National Redwood Forest as you drift down one of the last undammed rivers in California, where there are no motors allowed, while casting for the most sought after sport fish in the industry.

  • January is the beginning of our season. You get fresh new runs and cooler temperatures.

  • February is a little warmer and there are always fish in the system.

  • March provides warmer temperatures, with fresh and post-spawn fish.

The wild steelhead trout is one of the most exciting fish to have at the end of your line. Due to the proximity of the ocean, these fish are extremely energetic and aggressive.

Steelhead FishingThese steelhead are in a class of their own and average around 10 lbs, although 20 lb fish are boated every year.
