Default stealhead questions

I have a few questions regarding steelhead.

First question. Where would be a good place within reasonable driving distance from great falls Montana to fish for stealhead. I see the clearwater in Idaho. Is there really anywhere else?

Number two. Good stealhead rod load out. Spey, switch, or single handed? And a good line weight.

Number three. Flies. Just some general patterns and maybe techniques.

Number four. The best time of year.

These are just a few questions I would like answered. Is there a good book to read on this stuff. Ive never fished for steelhead before but I had a friend that went over there for a week and caught nothing. I know it can be hard but its something I want to try.


"I have a river runs through it on blue ray, so yeah, I guess you could say I know a thing or two about fly fishing."
