Low-water steelhead action.

Posted on December 2nd, 2016

Dave Bunting sent us these images on his low-water Great Lakes Steelhead action. As we all know there has not been significant rains to raise tributary levels. While there are still fish in the rivers and streams, they are predominantly holding anywhere there are deeper runs and pools.

With clear-water conditions its really advantageous to start early and be on your favorite spot just as it’s getting light. Also, many steelhead are still holding in the lower section of tributaries and it’s a good idea to fish the “frog-water”.

These conditions also require the most natural presentation which may mean down-sizing you terminal tackle and hook size. Smaller roe bags and smaller single egg imitations will also work well.
