Steelhead and Chubs?

Discussion in 'Steelhead Talk' started by relap77, Nov 1, 2008.

  1. Can you catch steelhead in areas that contain large concentrations of chubs? I have found that I have never caught a steelhead in an area where I was catching lots of chubs. I always assumed that chubs would not congregate in areas that contain steelhead because they would be eaten by them, but I am not sure.
     
  2. Yes, try switching baits going maybe to a little bigger presintation so the chubs leave it alone, also try a imitation minnow in that area. I have fished areas where I have caught 6 chubs in a row then the next cast wammm fish on .

    Sometimes chubs are all over the run I want to fish, the steelhead are still there and will bite its just getting the bait to them before you get it to the chubs.
