Steelheading was that unique angling pursuit which, during the 60s more closely followed the skills of hunting. Steelheaders, if they fished with a partner, pool-hopped rather than intruded on each other. More than not, steelheaders were loners, who fished the cold damp coastal streams in a solitary manner. If they saw another angler they would move to another section of the river, to be alone rather than compete. The theory that it took you two years to catch that first fish was not hearsay but fact, for steelheaders were reluctant to give any advice to the novice. Barry M. Thornton
Steelhead will take jigs through out late fall, winter and early spring which tend to be the best times of the year to try to entice these chrome beauty's. However, as long as steelhead exist in any particular body of water jigs are a game changer and will pretty much work at anytime of the year.
