Winter steelhead season is fast approaching and we are currently taking reservations for our most anticipated season of the year. The coastal steelhead season on the Smith and Chetco rivers is extremely popular and our days will go fast. The reason so many people are drawn to fish for steelhead on these two rivers is because the fish are fresh from the salt and hot on the end of the line. The smith river holds the CA state record for steelhead and with every cast you have the opportunity to join the elite 20 pound club. The chetco river has an amazing brud stock hatchery program that guides and ODFW have been working diligently on to help make it successful for decades. If you want to get out and experience some of the best winter steelhead fishing that CA and OR has to offer give IGS a call @ 530-598-0530 or visit our website

Take a look at some of the highlights from last year and see if you might be interested in a grip and grin with one of these beautiful creatures. I have also included our available dates so if one looks good to you let me know. Ironhead Guide Service is also offering gift certificates that make a great stocking stuffer for that special someone so if your still looking for Christmas gift ideas this might be a good time to surprise someone.
