Thanks for the info! This is my first season steelheading and was curious about these stockings. I know they are stocking rainbow trout in these areas but from what I understand, the diff between these and steel in the river are night and day? These stocked rainbow are a lot smaller than the wild in the river and it seems the tactics, baits and presentations are different too? Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

Technically they are the same species, rainbow trout, but there are slight genetic differences. Steelhead are migratory rainbows that migrate from the ocean(or in our case a great lake) to the rivers to spawn. Here in Ohio, 99% of our steelhead and regular inland rainbows are hatchery fish. Very few wild fish, and there are certainly no wild fish in those lakes. The steelhead are stocked when they're around 8in or so, and then swim out to the lake for a few years and come back to spawn.

That's kind of what I figured. So what's the story with totally different was of fishing for the inland lake guys?
