Northern Indiana Steelhead Swimming into Spring Stride

By: Todd Hatfield We’ve had unstable weather in Northern Indiana for the past month. We’ve had record highs, extreme runoff and then dipped back below freezing. What this has done is confused the steelhead. They started spawning a few weeks ago, then stopped and now they are starting again. What this means is that there’s [...]

Cowlitz Steelhead off to Slow Start – But Big Ones Around

By: Todd Daniels The Cowlitz River is the only place in Washington that has hatchery steelhead now. That’s it. Essentially, it’s a ghost town everywhere else. This being said the season has started off on the slower side. However, the numbers of steelhead returning are picking up daily. The good thing is, this year the [...]

Tillamook Region to Produce Steelhead Through March

By: Dave Manners We haven’t had a steelhead city like this in the Tillamook area for as long as I can remember. Despite having one of the wettest years in recent memory there’s lots of fish around. And, there’s going to be fish around for a while. We know it’s going to be consistent through [...]

Learn to Cure Eggs For West Coast Steelhead

By: John Albrich Out West, from Northern California through BC, and into Idaho, there’s still steelhead runs taking place. Some are about to expire while others are still in full swing. Regardless of whether it’s early or late in the run I cure my eggs the same way. I prefer fresh coho or mature steelhead [...]

Southeast Wisconsin Poised For Solid Steelhead Action

By: Kyle Deavers Back in January we were dealing with record high runoff in Southeast Wisconsin. With that said, all our snow melted before February arrived. Therefore, currently our rivers are low and clear and there’s no snow on the ground. In order for steelhead to be spread throughout our systems we have to hope [...]

Learn Easy Late Winter Cure For Trout & Steelhead Eggs

By: Kyle Deavers It’s late winter in the Great Lakes and steelhead action is improving daily as temperatures warm. While I’ve been catching lots of trout and steelhead on BorX O Fire cured shrimp I’m also drifting spawn sacks daily. As early spring approaches and the water warm the spawn bite will only improve as [...]

Great Lakes Anglers Using Cured Shrimp for Trout/Steelhead

By: Kyle Deavers For the last decade I’ve been using spawn bags daily for steelhead. However, with more shrimp showing up in the Great Lakes I figured it was time to match the hatch and start using shrimp for bait in our tributaries. I still bring spawn bags to the river daily. However, last year [...]

Oregon’s North Coast Steelhead Rivers To Fish This Week

By: Pat Abel Steelhead fishing has been challenging this year in the greater Tillamook area. Unfortunately, we’ve had to deal with snow, freezing cold, east winds and flooding. To be honest, I haven’t been on the water much because conditions haven’t allowed. We’ve had clients daily, but had to cancel trips due to harsh conditions. [...]

Learn to Make The Ultimate Great Lakes Spawn Bags

By: Kyle McClelland It’s winter in the Great lakes, which means good steelhead fishing can be found in most of our tributaries. We’ve been blessed with mild weather the last few winters, which presents great fishing opportunities. While many anglers use an array of baits, BorX O Fire cured steelhead spawn sacks proves to be [...]

Southern Ontario Steelhead Iced Into Winter Pattern

By: Bojan Zivkovic Our fall steelhead season flew by quickly in Southwestern Ontario. A reflection of low water conditions, many rivers saw poor returns. Low water has affected our winter steelhead, too. When we have high water our rivers normally fish in mid winter. Meanwhile, with the low water we have now many of our [...]
