Overall, the winter steelhead season has been pretty good on the Wilson river. After the recent rains the river is a little blown out, but before the rain hit the fishing was great. During this little down pour, the rain should only push more fresh fish into the river which should result in the fishing to continue to be very good. Right now the water levels on the Wilson are still a little high, with ideal levels for steelhead fishing being around 6-7 ft. The good news is that it shouldn’t take long for the river to get back into shape.
As far a what we were using when the fishing was hot? We were killing them with 1/8 and 1/16 nightmare jigs tipped with shrimp or yarn balls with a blob of eggs. Both got us great results. If anyone is looking to book a float trip on the Wilson please feel free to give us a call, We have a few spots available.
