Is “early” important for steelhead success?

Posted on April 15th, 2017

Question, if you are a steelheader, as we progress into spring how important do you think it is to start early and hit your favorite spot? To me it is very important, especially if water levels are low and water is clear and it also looks like it matters to Aaron Nijjar.

Under the above conditions your best best to hook steelhead is to be the first one fishing a stretch holding fish so you can take advantage of the low light just before daybreak, and for the critical 1hr afterwards. If the water is higher and discolored getting there early may not be as critical.
