New to salmon fishing
Live in coeur dalene and want to start fishing salmon and really would like some steelhead.

I figure the best spot to go is down in hells canyon. I've done a lot of backpacking in the area just no fishing.

So being in coeur dalene, is that the best area for steelhead? and the best time in the fall? just watch the dam numbers ?

is there any salmon going now?

pretty excited to do some research on poles and gear.
There are some fall chinook coming in to Lewiston right now, but the numbers are not that great. The Steelhead numbers are also poor, but there are fish to be caught. Brads superbaits from a boat for salmon or plugs for steelhead (hot lips, hot shots) will work right now. 8'6" or 9'6" medium to medium heavy is a pretty good all around rod for both.
