Hello all,
New guy here. I am new to the world of river fishing. I am very interested in getting into it though. Can any of you give me a crash course on steelhead fishing. I am going to worry about the other trout fishing later in the year. For now I am interested in Steelhead. Any info is greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the site, I may be able to give you some
insite to the steelhead fishing, you have great steelhead
fishing close to where you are, you can start with the Lester,
which is right at your door, you can cast Spoons or Spinners
into the lake at the mouth starting now, once you get in the river
it's single hook only, I would drift a egg fly, or egg sack with
yarn, right on the bottom, remember it takes some people years
before they get the hang of this, steelhead have a mind of there
own. Good luck, check your reg's because all of the Rivers on the
shore have special rules.

That's what I have done.. use spinners through the pools.. I've tried the eggs but w/ no luck. Also I see guys with worms where it's legal.

My best luck has been casting up into flowing waters and letting the current ping it off rocks till it flows into the pool. Once it starts sinking to the bottom of the deeper slower pool I begin slowly retrieving it.

you can throw Spinners in the lake, but not in the River,
no treble hooks below posted boundry, at the rate it's going
we are still very frozen I don't see the rivers being open for
opener(here in Grand marais).

Yeah.. I don't even know what river you guys are talking about?

Where I fish treble hooks are OK in the river.
But then you travel two more miles and you can only use a single barbless hook. northshorechef makes a good point when it comes to knowing the regs. They are much more complicated on those rivers and streams and they are much easier to misconstrue.

Wow!
Thanks for all of the greetings.
Thank you guys also for the info and tips. I know that there are regs onthe rivers that get quite involved, so i plan on spending a little time reading up on them. I am excited for an oppertunity to get out and try it.
Thanks again.
All info is appreciated fellas.
