Tackle and Methods
Salmon and Steelhead

Conventional spin fishing methods vary depending upon what you want from an angling experience and the conditions to be fished. Light rods that are sensitive but still have enough backbone to play big fish are preferred with reels that are smooth and reliable with easy to adjust drag settings that hold up to consistent abuse.

When using bait, fresh cured salmon roe is one of the best when back bounced or side drifted into holding waters. Backtrolled wee warts, hot shots and other techniques that have proven to be effective over the years are used with colors, shapes and sizes, this being important knowledge for consistent successful angling.
