Fly rods?? Here, the people who steelhead fish use the same exact set up I use except they call a bobber a strike indicator.
Haven’t fished it that low. Even I’ve caught Trask fish on the Spey fly. Missed a ton too.
I pretty much only use a spey rod now. We use single man pontoons to get from run to run and have thought about packing a single hand rod with bobber (I hate when guys call a bobber an indicator!) and a nymph pattern to hit some smaller pocket stuff between runs.
I have caught them on an indicator (yarn-ball bobber), high-sticking, and on the swing... Love catching em' on the swing, but I like catching them more... Nothing like having a fish almost rip the rod out of your hands...
We have a small steelhead run on a local river, and had no clue when we were fishing... Then I caught a fish that was into my backing here and now, and I chased that fish down stream about 1/2 mile before beaching it... It was all catch and release, but we did get stopped by a warden... I asked him if there were steelhead, and he winked as he told us that "although there is a salmon run here there is NOT a steelhead run that we KNOW of..." He made it clear that if there was investigation that showed a steelhead run, that it could greatly affect fishing regulations and availability...
This is what fishing looks like in the Midwest in February. Biggest pike I have caught, at 36.5"
We didn't have a scale, but figured it at around 10 pounds.
I will admit, I had a blast when I lived in Michigan and we’d spear the pike.
Sit in the shanty, hook a 12” sucker on a short line, pike comes in slow from behind. Drop spear! What a hoot.
Pike not bad eating either once I figured out how to filet the Y bones out.
H20, here’s a Wilson fish from a couple hours ago. Had to drift solo, nice living close enough my wife can shuttle me.
