yes, 'yarnie and a bead' under a bobber is what I use for winter steelhead. I normally have a yarnie on the first hook (and add eggs to it until I run out) and the second hook ('dropper') has a soft bead on it.

here is a shot of the rig I was...

I never fished with a bead and a yarn ball, but I have caught then on a Oaky floater and a yarn ball, so I don't see why it wouldn't work.

Some of my more productive days is when I used gear outside of the norm. Ever watch kids fish? With a bit of guidense as to the ethics and logistics they come up with the oddest ideas to catch, and catch fish they do.

here is a shot of the rig I was running during swift high, OFF color water back in early 2020. it's difficult to see but the upper hook has a red yarnie that I just loaded it up with eggs, the lower hook has a big (14mm) soft bead. you might also notice I have a split shot between the hooks to push the hooks down on this high water day.

Would it work or give it a try

my standard advice for fish that can be difficult to catch (I think steelhead might qualify) is to get familiar with a few of the popular techniques, get to where you are regularly hooking/landing fish, and then start experimenting.

I have caught fish on yarn with bead, but the bead wasn't above the hook, right next to it, I m not sure exactly why you should run bead above hook, maybe helps with hook ratio, I were to think fish maybe hooked outside the mouth.

I was thinking like 1'- 1 1/2 inches above yarn ball to peg my bead
