Most rivers that have both summer & winter runs like the Clack, Sandy, Wilson, etc, will have fresh steelhead in them year-round as the late winters will overlap with the early summers. Maybe less so on the bigger southern rivers like the Umpqua & Rogue where the summer run tends to come later than up north.

It's my favorite time of the year on the Clack other than the high water making some access kinda spotty. But there's winter nates, winter hatchery and summers should be trickling in. I'll be out tomorrow drifting the upper stretches.
