Steelhead are very opportunistic, perhaps more than any of the
other salmonids. In the Pacific Ocean, steelhead feed on baitfish,
pelagic worms and squid. When they feed on nymphs in the
rivers, some anglers think the steelhead re-adapt to what they first
experienced in the early stages of their life when they were
juveniles in the rivers? At that point in time they eat insects and
crustaceans.
West Coast Steelhead have traditionally been caught swinging a
wet fly. In recent years, nymphing has become more and more
popular. Most anglers think they attack the wet flies out of pure
aggression.
The early steelhead flies came from early Atlantic salmon fly
patterns which are primarily attractor fly patterns. The downstream
swing is the basic west coast Summer steelhead method used to
present them.
Fall run steelhead will also take wet flies well at
times. It's best to fish water that's above 40 degrees and it's
usually best under low light conditions. We have a large selection
of the most popular wet flies used for steelhead.
Most steelhead nymph flies imitate stonefly nymphs. Some flies
imitate caddisfly larvae and a few, mayfly nymphs. Steelhead
fresh out of the ocean holding in pools in the river waiting to
spawn will usually eat the nymphs and larvae imitations.
