It all depends on the amount of water we have. All of these streams are spate streams and they go from flood to "too low" very quickly. I've driven over many of them quite a bit recently on my smallie trips and they are starting to show their ribs. We need some serious rain this fall or it could be essentially as much a total loss as most of these rivers were last fall. It, therefore, is impossible to predict more than a week or so in advance. This sounds like a copout, but it isn't. Early November can be a terrific time for lake run browns and if the water levels are decent it also is the beginning of the steelhead run. Truth is, the browns will probably be in regardless of the water level, but to enjoy fishing for them you need enough water to swing a fly. I also have problems with catching and releasing stressed fish. Bring this post back a week or two before you want to leave and we can probably help you a little more.
