Is the steelhead fishing worth a 2 hour drive?

Fished yesterday 6 to 1030, went 5 for 8 on steelhead with a dozen or so suckers. Seen no fish below the weir all fish caught in quarry lake area on egg fly. The water is getting to warm looks like run is about done not a great season compared to the past. Don't think i will hit the river again this year. time to get ready for spring coho off the wall.

The steel is in and violent! Went 1-4 Saturday on a mepps and vibrax spinner. Fished only one stretch of river and saw about 8 fish jumping and moving about. Spawn didn't produce. Great day to be out!

Was there 7am till 11ish. Tons of people, and not many courteous people. . Suckers everywhere. I was throwing spawn and never saw a steelhead caught by any of the 15 people within 200yds of me.

Conditions: Sunny
There are a lot of fish in the river presently. Fish sailed over the wier last week with the water level high. I fished Wednesday through Friday. I did not fish early, which was a mistake. Others had good success early. The fish are holding in the faster water from the golf course up to the bridge. Males are aggressive. There are many suckers in the river. Focus on the fast water, and be patient, the fish are in.

Has anybody been down there and seen if the water is clear enough to get out? I'm guessing by this weekend but not sure

To add to Airanglers good comments, there are locations in the river, as in all rivers, where the fish will be plentiful during high water. In order to find those areas one must observe the river during all water levels, drought and flood and everything in-between. It'll pretty much be the same in most rivers. There are a lot of fish in the root right now.

Fishing in less than ideal conditions is the best way to learn and make yourself a better angler. Another way to figure out when to go is to learn to read the usgs flow charts, and keep track of what the flows are each time you go, this way you quickly figure out when conditions are good or bad. That is the best way to determine when to go IMHO...
