I'm not an expert on Nor cal but as far as I know, the Salmon fishing is off limits this year due to the small runs along the pacific coast. My buddy lives in Oregon and I think the steel head runs have been pretty slow as well. I would plan on fishing the streams for trout but you will need to check for restrictions. Hopefully some of the northern cal guys will chime in.

Smith River, Rogue River, are about as good as it gets for Steelhead. THere are local websites up there that have some reports, check WON (Western Outdoors Newspaper) too, they have some stuff on there about that area and steelhead, and yes, Salmon are a no no
