Last Chance for Wisconsin Steelhead

By: Kyle Deavers In March and April we’ve been plagued by low water along the Southeast Wisconsin shoreline. These conditions have made steelhead fishing tough.

Niagara River “Spring” Steelhead Update

By: Ted Kessler Even though our March was slower than normal due to Arctic like weather we are looking forward to good spring fishing as weather patterns stabilize and the river gradually warms. I’d say our steelhead run on the Niagara River this year has been average, which is good. Given the current conditions I [...]

Salmon River Steelhead Poised for Great Spring Action

By: Troy Creasy It’s been a great year for steelhead on the Salmon River. Sure we had high water all winter, but steelhead trickled in on high water. The hatchery got its eggs in a few days. There’s a ton of steelhead around this year. This is the best run we’ve seen in five years [...]

Anglers Working Harder for Chrome on The North Oregon Coast

By: Dave Manners Steelhead season on the North Oregon Coast hasn’t been as good this year as it’s been in the past. We’ve had some incredible days, but overall we aren’t catching as many fish this year. With that said I’m catching fish every day, just not as many as we’re used to. On a [...]

Learn to Water Harden Eggs for Great Lakes Spring Steelhead

By: James Swearingen As we transition from winter to spring I prefer using trout/steelhead eggs when targeting spring steelhead. I believe steelhead eggs are effective because that’s what the fish are keying in on. This is natural food source and something they see on a regular basis this time of year. Many anglers use powdered [...]

Learn A Quick & Easy Steelhead Cure

By: Bob Kratzer The new age of egg curing has become more complicated. There are more steps and more ingredients. Meanwhile, if you ask an old time steelheader they would tell you to “just use borax cured eggs.” When I’m short on time and need to cure quality eggs I do something similar. Rather than [...]
