Steelhead on the Fly

Steelhead on the Fly

Indicator Fishing

November is probably my favorite time of year to target steelhead. Yes, the weather can be a bit unpredictable, but with the correct layering, any day can be comfortable. My favorite thing about November is that there are a variety of techniques that can effectively be used to target steelhead. Of course, drift fishing will always take fish, but fishing with a floating line and indicator will start to shine as fall moves into winter.

Nymphing and Spey Fishing in Winter

Steelhead fishing in the winter can be an enjoyable, peaceful experience. The traffic on the river has slowed down for the season. You can enjoy the beauty of nature, from deer to bald eagles soaring above in the sky. You do not have to sit at home thinking or dreaming of going fly fishing. Winter time offers a variety of different opportunities to learn new techniques and brush up on old ones.
