Steelheading is very contemplative experience requiring great patience that can be done in some very beautiful places. Success is measured as time on the water, vistas viewed and friends made and perhaps you will be rewarded with a couple hookups.
Totally agree ^^. My first winter on the Mendocino coast I fished every day of February that the water wasn't completely blown out. I hooked four and landed two, but I saw many things I'll never forget. One of the finest times of my life. And when you do connect -- it's like hooking a bolt of lightning. Pretty good.

Lived in Healdsburg, CA for years and minutes to the river and the mouth of 'Dry Creek' which leads to the Hatchery. A 'no-no' to fish in the creek but you could walk along and see the fish in one/two foot deep water. As the water came out from behind a huge damn (Lake Sonoma) no chance that the creek would dry.

Was interesting to see the dam going up and the expectation it would take years to fill up the Res. behind. God had a different plan. Tropical rain over a few days and millions of gallons backed up behind the dam. Then another a couple of weeks later.

Main river (Russian) was blown out for weeks from the run off. Basicly the season was history .... drive to Oregon and fish the Chetco.

Given how much I love Healdsburg and ORegon, this post warms my heart. But as others have intimated, I misunderstood the original question. There are great places and great days for steelhead fishing. That's different than, and so much more easy than, planning a trip for steelhead catching.

ROFL! Hook 'em Horns! But no joke, if time and money aren't the major issues, I'd go west young man. I lived in Indiana for awhile and did a bit of steel head fishing there and around Grand Rapids Michigan, but the Pacific North West beats it all hollow. I'd hit Grand Rapids if its a time issue, but Oregon or Washington would be a better trip.
