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:)))
