    Default Floated the American yesterday for Steelhead.....

    And didn't catch any.

    Hence, there are no fish in that river. Reports of steelhead are greatly exaggerated. I am going to go to the great lakes next year to catch some REAL steelhead.

    Great lakes steelhead are steelhead, but not real steelhead. Real steelhead come from the salt!

    Default I agree.

    JD-

    There ain't any steelhead in CA. Not in the A, the T, the K, the LS, the SFE, the R, the G, the other G, the S, the VD, the RC, ...so no need to go and fish those rivers either!

    (Did I leave any out?)

    Great Lake steelhead are where it's at! Take some friends too, and show them! I'll keep scouting those other rivers for you and if I find any steel I'll be sure and let you know - your friends too, I promise!

    JGB:

    I know there are no steelhead because if there were, I am such a good angler, I would have caught them.

    That's a total myth. I heard they came from the great steelhead run of Louisiana, where they used to spawn in the lower Mississippi tribs.

    The Guy that wrote the book I read must of had quite an imagination... I especially enjoyed the part he made up about changing the day light photo period of the Skeena fish to trick them into becoming a Summer run...just goes to show you can not believe Books only the Internet....Don't ya just love it???

    Steelhead=anadromous; anadromous=migrating from salt water to spawning in fresh.

    What would lake Steelhead or Bows that migrate from fresh to fresh have as a scientific name?

    So now a rainbow that lives in Shasta Lake and goes up in the Upper Sac to spawn maybe are also Steelhead?


    Boy o Boy so many questions
