Winter Steelhead

Winter is in full effect right now on the Salmon River.   The lake effect snow and single digits at night means slush will start being a factor. Here are a few tips to help you be successful.

No need to start at first light.  Usually the bite doesn’t start til the sun hits the water and the air temp rises.
Fish slow and deep especially in higher flows.
Fish flies you have confidence in.
Concentrate on the guts and tail-out of pools.
Dress appropriately, wear layers  and it help to be in a drift boat with heaters.
