The post below was helpful as I also try to catch my first winter steelhead for me or my son on the North Fork Alsea. I know it's important to get the bait to that sweet spot within two feet of the bottom, but how do I know how deep the North Fork of the Alsea is? How does it compare to the reading we can get of the Alsea at Tidewater? I need to know so I can set my bobber stop correctly. Right? I read a post somewhere that said a 7.25 foot reading at Tidewater would be ideal for the North Fork. What would that translate to? THANKS!
