I might go fishin for steelhead tomorrow too, havent done that in about 12 years. I got jigs and floats, some spoons, and worms. Still need to buy some inline weights and my steelhead tag. Iv got 1 question though how do you tie on your jigs?

I've heard it's been fairly slow at both the Sandy and the Wilson, I know the Wilson better so I'd say the Wilson.

Check my avatar. First time using a water bobber as a weight and an indicator. fill water bobber half way-slide up line and secure w/stick or twig and tie jig directly to mainline:) It worked great for me today and the clear water bobbers don't spook the fish

I use the improved clinch knot, and I go through the eye twice. For me, it seems like doing it that way keeps my knot in place better. You want your jig to ride level, or tail up if anything. Tail down is a very unnatural look. Make sure your knot is all the way to the back of the eye toward the hook.

make sure that when you bobber fish your bobber is standing straight up at all times for efficient presentation... Also i would suggest clackamas or sandy for tomorrow.. And if you try the sandy i would try higher up. good luck!
