WINTER STEELHEAD

Some thoughts on winter steelhead….

Winter steelhead fishing requires

1- Arduous patience
2-Systematic approach of likely water based on water conditions
Heads and tails in high water
Guts of the run in low and clear

3-Proper lines choice for the run based on depth and flow

I like 4 rods rigged-
7.5 feet of T-14 on a Standard Skagit
10 feet of T-8 on a Rage
10 feet of T-11 to 14 on a Gamechanger or FIST
15 feet 0f T-11 on a Standard Skagit

4-Reasonable fly rendition based on clarity / weighted vs unweighted

5-Sharp hooks

6-Positive thoughts:)))

Overall the fishing has been worthy.  Again, a variety of lines are the ticket based on depth and flow.

We have used everything from 7.5 ft of T-11 on standard Skagits  to Game Changers and Fists with T-14.

Winter Steelhead
Well Snowmagedden has not stopped the fishing/catching….It has stopped the people, understandably. The glacial rivers have been the place to be lately with everything been low and clear otherwise.

A variety of lines have been applicable lately…

Standard Skagit
Intermediate Skagit
The Gamechanger
The FIST
Nexcast 55

A little rough lately… overall . Lower river is pretty much froze over.  Farmlands and upstream would be the place to be – Less ice.  Often times the numbers of fish are limited in these conditions…..But some big ones can be had; especially on streamers.

Prior to this cold snap the fishing was goooood….Should be great once she warms up a bit.
