A Word from the Author
Fishing for steelhead in the rivers of Washington State is my passion. This website contains some of the knowledge that I have learned about these fish in the past twenty-five years, and the techniques that I use to hook these tremendous fighters. I practice catch and release for all wild steelhead and encourage everyone who visits this site to do the same. These fish are much too valuable to end up in a freezer in someone's garage.
