Sensitive floats & roe bags for spring steelhead.

Posted on April 2nd, 2016

Steelheading lower sections of Great Lakes tributaries normally involves fishing wider stretches with less flow for leery steelhead that may only respond to a slow, natural drifting presentation.

I find more tapered, light Balsa Wood floats in the 2-4 gram size work best, attached to the line with surgical tubing.

I keep my fresh tied roe bags small and use a small hook to avoid getting hung-up on the bottom when slow water may land your sack near submerged wood. These two key items can really make a difference in getting, detecting and converting hits into “fish-on”!
