Well from the looks of it on this board steelhead are a popular subject right now! Either some members have gotten mad or were thankful for the info shared on fishing for steelhead. I my self have not fished for steelhead on the fly, but would love to start that fishless passion(wait all of my FF trips are fishless bawling. How many people are hardcore steelhead chasers or would consider themselves to be? Which is best summer run or winter run? I have fished for them once last winter on the Cowlitz river with gear. I fished the day that the Chehalis river rose really fast and flooded Chehalis.
