Preparing to Fly Fish for Steelhead in Idaho
I am preparing to go Steelhead fishing in Idaho. You may not know exactly what a Steelhead is but you may have heard of the Idaho Steelheads that play our hockey team, or Maybe have eaten Steelhead before.
The National Wildlife Federation puts it well, "Rainbow trout and steelhead are the same species, but they have different lifestyles. Steelhead are anadromous, meaning they spend part of their lives in the sea."
Steelhead are a big North America sport fish. They can be large in size and very difficult to catch, especially fly fishing.
Idaho boasts some of the best Steelhead fishing and not too far from us either. I will be in Kamiah and the Kooskia area which a bit of a drive but worth it.
Wish me luck!
