STEELHEAD TROUT: OREGON: Coastal fishing improving in north-coast streams as they recede and clear. Nestucca, Siletz, Alsea, Salmon and Siuslaw rivers producing some fish on bait, and next high water should bring major runs into rivers; OG for bait fishing. John Day River in central Oregon L, C, FF/G on spin lures, late summer-run fish still in good condition here and OG for fly-fishers.

BRITISH COLUMBIA: All Vancouver Island and most coastal streams bank-high or higher; runoff will continue through this week in most sections but winter steelhead should be in and ready to take when waters drop to normal.
