View Full Version : Steelhead on the Russian.

Anyone fishing the Russian for steelhead? I haven't seen any fish yet...lots of people, and 1 in 10 are saying they've caught one but that's about it.
I'm fairly new to the world of rivers and trout fishing, but am looking forward to having something to do when bass aren't biting!

Steelhead are a tough species to target and going after them on the Russian makes it even tougher. The Russian can have good fishing on occassion, but you need to be at the exact right place at the exact right time and then usually have wrestle dozens of others to get on the fish. Depending on how you want to go after them (wade or drift) I would look elsewhere if you want to have any consistent success. Good luck and if you get hooked it will be a lifelong pursuit.
