HI Italo, what is your favorite high viz color for monofilament when fishing for salmon/steelhead?

Posted on October 5th, 2021

Depending on the light conditions and the color of the water I try and use a high viz color. Bright yellow is my go-to, but I also use bright orange. I can watch both well as I’m drifting to make sure the line is “mended” back up-stream, so it doesn’t drag the float faster then the current. In murky water I prefer the yellow line, in clear water I prefer the orange line. I think the orange line is less visible to fish holding in shallower pools than the yellow. With both I use a fluorocarbon leader at least 20” long up from the hook…God bless you.


Make sure to check the fishing videos on our Italo Labignan YouTube channel and if you have any questions just email them to me at Ask Italo throughout our Canadian Sportfishing website.
