I heed help! I’m planning on going fishing Saturday with my dad and we never get to hang out together because he’s always working so this will be special. Im fishing in the Satsop river in Western Washington. I was wondering the best baits or lures for perfectly clear water fishing out of a drift boat. Thanks a TON.

The Satop River in Washington can be pretty fast-flowing in early spring and the drifts can be fast with steelhead holding throughout the deeper water runs.


Top wobbling lure is a Luhr Jensen Kwikfish in #5 or #7 size or Luhr Jensen Hot Shot. If you want to drift-fish, www.creekcandybeadcompany.com , are excellent, as well as drifting with streamer flies. Use a 3-way swivel rig with about a 3-4′ leader and 1/4-3/4 oz. “slinky” or “pencil-lead” weight. (Drift boat image provided by, www.leeroysramblings.com )
