Steelhead fly Tips - Pacific NW
I am heading out for a week long trip to the Pacific NW for a little R&R and a lot of fishing. We're meeting up with a friend who regularly fishes for steelhead, but uses spinning gear. I would love to get one of them on my flyrod (even if I can't bring it in!), but have no idea what to use.

I don't imagine most my regular techniques for Utah Rivers will be too productive. I'm thinking clouser minnows and other large streamer type flies. Anybody have any advice. Hardware, lines, flies, etc etc etc.Smile

Steelhead are very feeseable and lots of fun on a flyrod. A 6 or 7 weight is perfect and a 5wt will give you some extra fun.

Streamers and Clousers are the key. You can make some of your own and add some small amounts of mylar mixed with flashabou.

Steelies in that area are the better see run Trout that you can fish for.

Please feel free to give us a report when you get back.
