Last weekend my friend and I made took a trip to fish the trinity river for steelhead. This was my first time drifting for steelhead, we were on shore and hit it hard for two days. The only thing I caught was a decent brown trout, which i felt lucky to get. I am an avid trout fisherman, I did not realize how different steelhead really are. I am going again, but this time our destination is the russian. We use roe, corkies, and twelve lb. line. We also use from what Im told, is the standard steelhead leader setup. Any advice for my up coming trip, being skunked made me feel as though my setup and presentation were off?
