Raw and Nasty: Perfect Climes for Steelhead

“Steve and I work upstream and I start seeing fish everywhere. HUGE fish, easily 2 feet long, resting in clear, shallow water. And, unlike many streams, they don’t spook. It’s a treat just to see these creatures, but I want to catch them. The driving wind and rain gives way to a patch of blue sky. Young puts on a tiny egg pattern and I drift through a promising hole a few times and BAM!” It’s AP writer Dan Nephin again, fishing Pennsylvania’s Twenty Mile Creek for steelhead and stocked coho salmon.
