Steelhead or Lake Run Fish (local)
I fish over on Snowbird alot for the Steelhead that run out of Santeetlah as many of you know. I have come across something I have never seen on the creek this season, that is a pod of said fish. I have not had any success hooking them I don't think these fish are holding behind a hen (can't see her if she is there). I have managed a few follows but no takes. Is this a situation that steelheaders deal with and (if so) does anyone on the site have any advice? I am thinking next trip I will try a really big streamer to try to draw a territorial strike. I have fished to Kings in Michigan holding behind a hen and this seems to be a different scenario. Any thoughts appreciated!
