I fish the Rocky for Steelhead 8-10 times a year. I use a spinning reel with jig/maggots and rooster tails or some other type of lure. I catch a few but by no means am I an expert. (I'd love to learn to fly fish) Anyway, I always thought that the way the river looked today (high and muddy) that you couldn't catch Steelhead. Today I went to a spot where the beavers call home and watched two guys catch one and place it on a stringer with another one. I didn't talk to them but they had a minnow bucket so I assume that's what they were using. So how were they catching them in the "dirty" water? MMmm?
