Yes and yes. Big strong fish in what can be small streams is a challenge. It's a challenge to get the feel for when they take and a challenge to land them without their having their way with you by heading down-current or for any brush pile or sharp rock in the area. The fight is the draw for me.
This is said concerning east coast steelhead. In the west I understand them to take differently and the streams to be quite large.
