I fished up there several times .
The best area I fish , is Caribou .
I use alot of Panther Martins .
My favorite is a #4 gold or gold/black .
What worked good for me also -
was a very small sliding sinker worm rig .
Same as you would use off the bottom at a lake .
Just down sized a bit .
Just drop to the bottom of a deep hole in the creek .
And watch for a bite .
Watch that snagging though ........ ;)

Have a good one !

PG&E plants the river every other Wednesday. Fish under the bridge just past the third campground. They dump a load of fish off the bridge. Panther martins, salmon eggs and worms all work.

Make sure you check the regs!!! Especially for the areas below all the campgrounds!
