Re: March Steelhead : Ohio Steelhead Alley or NY Salmon River?
They'll probably get blown out several times between now and march but most of them seem to drop within a few days and a lot of people like to hit them as they are dropping. I've been told if you fish them when they are blown out the fish will stack a couple of feet out from the bank and a lot of people have success targeting them.
Right now most of the rivers have pretty thick ice on them and when it breaks up it's going to be a mess for a few days. The last warm spell we had a few weeks ago caused massive ice jams.
