Although few anglers have probably experienced it, Steelhead will
sometimes take a surface or dry fly. These river steelhead are
usually caught swinging a dry fly over a steelhead holding near the
surface. Steelhead often follow the fly and sometimes take it at the
end of the swing  but usually they strike the fly as if it were an
intruder.
Some anglers swear by certain tactics and techniques but without
going into a lot of specifics that relate to specific streams and
situations, let us just say that the speed the fly passes over the fish
is of utmost importance. If the fly passes through the window of
vision of the steelhead at the right speed, the fish may instinctively
strike at it. This is sometimes called a reaction strike.
It would be rare to get a steelhead to rise to a fly from several feet
deep. Most that are caught on dry flies are holding near the tail outs
where large boulders and rocks are near the surface.
Different surface steelhead flies, or dry steelhead flies have
different profiles and create different types of disturbances on the
surface of the water. Some larger deer hair flies called walkers
create a lot of disturbance. Some are called Skaters that stay on
top of the water much like trout dry flies. Larger, traditional dry flies
like Stimulators and Royal Wulfs work well in flatter, less turbulent
water. Muddler styled dry flies work well in most water.
