Rain and steelhead

R
Rascal
Well with the heat wave over and the new rains, i was just wondering if i should change any thing when steelhead fishing. Should i just keep using small and dark lures and jigs or is there something better for summer rains?

dont know if it changed the water color to much but if the water has a lil color you can run any color you really want. and just so you know i hooked up in clear water on bright colors just they have to be very small.... but dark will do better with low water. so pretty much depends on were your fishing and how that water looks

I would be okay with whatever, I can drive if everyone wants to meet up somewhere, i live in Clackamas and have a full size 4 door truck. I'd think higher up near McIver or maybe around where Eagle Creek meets up with the clack would be better?

Went up to McIver last night with youngbuck, no steel caught but there were a few jumping around. Caught the biggest Sucker Fish I've ever seen :shock: It was about 20in. long and if I had to guess a weight, probably around 5 - 6lbs. I thought I was snagged! It was like reeling in a huge log...that decided to fight every once in a while. Also caught a small salmon, maybe 14in. long or so. definitely not a trout, it was too torpedo shaped and had different colors. No pictures, forgot the camera at home. It was a good trip! I'm planning on going out again early Sat. morning, any one up for it?:dance:
