Put in your time and pay your dues. There's no magic formula to catching steelhead. At this time of the year it's probably best to fish the mornings and evenings or concentrate on the deeper holes but, of course, that doesn't mean you can't pick one up in the most unlikely of places. I remember hooking one upstream of Seapost (I know the current sign has it C-Post, but the old maps all labeled it Seapost) in water that couldn't have been more than two feet deep, at about noon, on a hot, bright day in July. Go figure!
