Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if any of you guys fly fish for steelhead? and what flys are you using or any ideas on what to tie last year. I went last weekend and all i had was egg patterns and some nymphs. My buddy caught one. Still a bit early for them but i want to be prepared because it will be in full swing in about a month any advice or patters would help a ton thatnks guys!!

kinda just alot bigger fish!!! In my experience the thing you have to get used to is setting the hook down stream. I was always told this and never asked any questions on why but it is because you want to "hook into the fish" i missed a few fish not doing this so. Its a good time you'll have a blast!!

up here in ontario i use a lot of purple and black wooly buggers as well as egg sucking leaches. Eggs of course, comets, blue thunder, wooly worms, pink san juan worms (fly tiers substitute for berkly pinkies) also fuzzy wuzzy's work good to.

Here is a good site for fly tying. This has a ton of steely flies in the data base.

Doucet I also live here in washington (Omak) you should make a trip to the Grande Ronde river the fishing can be outstanding, I dont fly fish for steelhead but I use jigs alot and they are kind of like a fly I guess, eggs work good so any imitations of that would work, I am going next week as a matter of fact but I think the river may be blown up so we may head down to the snake if thats the case, if you want to check the river conditions go to westfly.com, I have had 10 plus fish day on this river and have heard of people doing even better than that ;)
