Default Re: stealhead questions

Looks you will have to decide weather you want to go after ocean run or great lakes run steelhead. Since you are about in the middle of both. Well, after a closer look, I see you are on the west side of Montana. You should try to either go with someone with experience or hire a giude, this will speed up the learning curve greatly.
I've been flogging Steelies on Lake Ontario streems for quite some time with egg, bugger, nymph and wet flies. I am using a 9', 8wt single hand rod. I've done pretty well on both Steelheads and Browns, I learn something most every time I get out.

Good luck

Mike
