Default Re: Setting the hook for steelhead vs trout?

It really depends on how hard the take is...

If its sipped off the surface - I gently raise the rod tip on trout about a foot then set it upwards.

On steel - I say "god save the queen" then set it hard - parallel to the water - they don't call them steel heads for nothing... set it in the corner of their mouth.
