Fishing steelhead?

Recommended Posts

Random question....can you fish steelhead in relatively close to the mouth of the salmon river in october? I mean within 100ft depth or so? I know steelhead run up the river come mid october to feed on the salmon eggs. Can they be caught in the lake before they run up? I've always wondered this. Thanks

Thanks. Same tactics as deeper? Spoons with long leads, flasher fly? Since they are feeding, unlike the staging salmon, what would work well? I'm not looking for the actual lures, just a broad idea. I'd like to try this this year

I fish them same as offshore and in shallow same as fishing for browns.
