Summers are easy. They hold in the heads of mild riffles. And eat just about anything. We killed a bunch on Coon Shrimp, and drift fishing spinners last Summer. In the Sandy they spread out all the way past the old Marmot. Hit those riffle sections, and any highly oxygenated water will hold a fish or two.

Jigs & Spinners are the easiest techniques to start with. There is a lot of info on this site as well as the web. Steelhead University is another good site to check out.

Yup. There will be Winters in the System until the end of May I'm sure. Summer fish are just easy to target. They are normally in the same place every time...;)
