STEELHEAD TROUT: OREGON: New run of steelies showed up last week in lower Rogue River above Gold Beach and OG from Grant's Pass to Galice; river SH but C, and standard steelhead patterns on #6 and #8 hooks should get results.
BRITISH COLUMBIA: Stamp River H, FP but should improve. A run of big bright fish reported at Spence's Bridge on South Thompson River; OG next 10 days.
TROUT: MONTANA: SC Nov. 15 on most streams but, except in middle of rare warm days, there's little trout action.
ONTARIO: Providence Bay and Bluejay Creek (Manitoulin Island) report OG for rainbows, with season open until Nov. 30. Nottawasaga, Sturgeon and Thornbury rivers in southern Ontario producing good creels of rainbows and OG.
CALIFORNIA: Unseasonable hot spell slowed Sierra fly-fishing last week below 7,000 feet but high lakes are producing nicely. Best bets on east slope are upper Owens and Rock creek, Hilton lakes, and lakes off Tioga Pass road. Kern River above Isabella Dam is hot and OG next 10 days. Upper Sacramento and McCloud rivers are top prospects in northern California.
NEVADA: Upset of week is Pyramid Lake near Reno, with over 100 rainbows to eight pounds reported. Believed troutless since droughts of '40s, lake was apparently restocked with Truckee trout during floods three years ago.
COLORADO: Five-pound rainbow reported from Granby Reservoir last week; Gunnison River (Gunnison area) L, C, FF, OG; East, Tomichi and Cebolla creeks VL, FG with flies, FF with bait, OG.
IDAHO: Salmon River and tributaries producing good creels with brown woolly worm most-favored fly; Snake River at Thousand Springs still good; Sun Valley area, Little Wood and Big Wood rivers, middle fork of Payette and Little Salmon. (Trout SC Oct. 31.)
