Default NW Indiana Steelhead 3-26-14

Went to NW Indiana to Trail Creek yesterday. Morning temps were below freezing so we experienced some ice on our fly rods. About 11:00 it became warm enough that icing stopped. Landed one nice Steelhead to make the day great!!! Had another couple hits. Talking with locals, fishing has varied, but several different species of fish have been caught. Warmer temps next week should encourage more action. It was a great first trip for the year.

I'm looking to expand to steelies this year, and Trail Creek is on my list. If you don't mind, what access point did you go to? What flies were you using? Thanks.

I have been from behind the Fire Station to the State Road 20 area. I was using yarn eggs and landed this one at the State Road 20 access.

That is a beautiful and fresh steelhead.

I love winter steelhead and how the river looks and behaves during winter. I am glad you had fun.

Awesome stuff. I was wondering if anyone was getting into the steelhead up that way.

Has anyone hit the Mishawaka area?
