One thing I want to cross off my bucket list this fall is trolling for steelhead off the tributaries.  I’m planning to troll some spoons in 10-20’ along shore this weekend before I reluctantly put the boat away for winter. I would love to hear some tips from anyone that has done this in terms of lures/ techniques.

Please Let us know where you fished and if you caught anything, I wanted to get out but may not get a chance. I’ve gone out in years past just flatline or weighted  spoons in front of SR, but only caught 2 steelhead and a couple skunk trips,,,, I know bill saiff posts good pike and walleye action in Henderson area every late fall.

Thanks, I hope to make it out Saturday morning between SR and Selkirk if the weather cooperates. May end up walleye fishing on Oneida unless it’s really sloppy out.

On Erie there are a handful of charters that troll for them. Fluorescent red or orange jointed rapalas and small spoons. I would add small hot’n’tots

Cool thanks. My brother-in-law tried yesterday with orange spoons with no luck and didn’t mark anything. Water temp was 53. Still hoping to give it a try before I put the boat away.

Completely hit or miss as stream levels and temps are conducive to shooting right up the river. If are not marking fish,seeing jumping etc etc don’t spend much time.  The estuary may be a better play

Great to know, makes sense.  Back trolling or casting?
