5 Tips for Winter Steelhead

Winter Steelhead
Hooked up

Here's a few tips to help you find more steelhead this winter. Happy hunting!

Look for the “Gooey” water. If you’ve ever fished with me, you’ve heard me talk about matching the water I choose to fish with the water temperatures. In the cold months of winter, don't waste precious fishing time in the short days of winter fishing fast riffles... The fish don't live there when the water is cold. Instead, focus your efforts in the slow, “gooey” water in the guts and tail-outs of pools.

(If you golf, you’re probably saying  “Duuu Tom”)

In addition to reviews on the new Boron III TH spey rods, I've included spey line recommendations with the "Larimer stamp of approval".
