Re: Closest place to Oklahoma for some steelhead ?
I'll try to explain it from a different perspective. It's a process thing. Steelhead either are there, or they aren't. When they are present, they may or may not want to play. The conditions may or may not be conducive to fishing. They don't hold where you would normally catch smaller fish. When you have them located and they are cooperating, you better play your A-game. When you consider all of these factors, it is a rare thing to be on the water during a catcharama. If you are, it's probably some guy up or down stream from you.
The PNW is such a special place. If you ever get the chance to float the Smith, you won't forget it. I'd go for that, and if you hook a fish, that would be the bonus.
