Top Summer Steelhead Flies

The summer Steelhead season can be divided up into three sub seasons: Spring/early summer, summer, and fall. The flies for summer Steelhead change according to these sub seasons and water conditions.

During the spring season Steelhead are coming into the rivers and often with rivers flowing on the full side. Fish are aggressive and will take winter type Steelhead flies (bigger, and Intruder style flies ).

Summer season often sees Steelhead becoming less aggressive and acting a bit more like trout. Water conditions are lower and warmer, and Steelhead fishing is best early morning and later afternoon and evening hours. Flies are smaller and usually fished higher in the water column.

Fall season finds Steelhead are getting more aggressive as they sexually mature. Depending on water conditions Steelhead can get more territorial and respond to Intruder type flies again, or smaller versions of them.

Below are some suggestions of some top producing flies.

Neo Classic Methow

This fly is now tied in a classic tie up, and has been a super effective Steelhead fly. It first started as the Improved Methow Moal, and then evolved into Skagit Methow Leech (which has the record for catching 20 lb Steelhead).

Muddler Minnow, Gold, size 4

Muddler, Size 4

The Muddler Minnow is one of the most popular fly patterns in the world.

When swinging the Muddler the fly moves in and out of the surface film, enticing Steelhead to the strike.

Muddlers are also fished subsurface with sinking tip lines. Muddlers because of their deer hair trap lots of shimmering bubbles of air that fish love. Tied by Aqua Flies.

    Stu's Metal Head Tube, Black/Blue

    Stu Foxall's latest creation is a tube fly utilizing the Pro Sportfisher Ultra Sonic Cones. These cones are made of brass and are slotted. The Ultra Sonic Cone adds some weight to the fly, but is still very easy to lift out of the water due to the venting holes, while maintaining the capability to create a vortex behind the disc, allowing soft materials to swim freely instead of collapsing in hard current.

    Very nice tie up. Make sure you take a long some of these on your next Steelhead fishing trip.

    Neo Skagit Leech, Purple/Black/Pink

    Improved Methow Moal

    AKA: Two Toned Flash Moal Leech, Blue/Chartreuse

    Moal leeches are tied entirely on a string with a trailer hook at the back. This gives the fly greater action than a fly tied on a rigid hook. More fish are landed with the Moal fly as well.

    The combination of rabbit fur which has incredible life in the water and flashabou creates an illuminated attraction for fish. A real winner!

    Two Toned Flash Moal Leech - Flashabou and rabbit wrapped around a string go together. Moal Leeches have great movement in the water. They wiggle and undulate, which moves the flashabou in wave like motion reflecting colorful light waves as the fly swings across the river. Two Toned (color) Flash Moals have two different colors of flashabou tied in. The tail color is tied in after half the fly is wrapped with rabbit. The head flashabou is tied with a length of 2/3's the fly length. This works much better that two colors of flashabou tied in together at the cone.

    Jeff Hickman designed the Fish Taco Spey fly specifically for Steelhead and Salmon. When Jeff Hickman gets hungry he thinks of one of his favorite things to eat - fish tacos.

    Like Fish Tacos - a favorite dish for hungry fly fishermen, and every cook has their own recipe. Grabflies has its recipe and custom ties these Fish Tacos by hand in Washougal, Washington.

    Since these Tacos are custom tied, Grabflies offers them in many different flavors and tie ups. You can get them in almost every color, and if you want to fish them deeper you can add Hot Cones.

    Jeff Hickman likes to fish Purple Tacos in the morning, bright colors during the day, and black in the evening/dark.

    The tried and True Mother of all Leeches. The classic Strung Out MOAL (Mother of all Leeches) is the one thst started it all. Invented by Derek Fergus is is one heck of a pattern. These really are a pattern you need if you hunt Steelhead. Because we use a Octopus hook the short shank holds fish far better allowing more fish to hand. Because it is tied on a string (gel spun) the fly tends to wiggle and swim in the current. Specially swinging them.

    The Moal Leech catches Steelhead in all conditions. Add it to your fly box. You will never look back.

    "I wanted to thank you for your fast service and a great product.  I have
    been fly fishing for over forty years and have caught hundreds of trout and
    salmon and even a few bonefish but I had never caught a steelhead on a fly
    before last weekend.  With my fifth cast of your black and purple MOAL into
    a nice Clackamas riffle I hooked and landed a small hatchery summer hen.  I
    attached a picture although it doesn't show the fly too well (my hands were
    still shaking)." -

    "his interest in evolution"
  • the gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more complex form.
    "the forms of written languages undergo constant evolution"

    Sugar Bunny

    My brother and I recently went to the Skeena river for the first time for Summer run fish. We had some pretty good Intel on a few runs and techniques. One thing that my source stressed was that if we waded out past our ankles that we were fishing too far out! Man was he right! It took me a few days to catch up to my brother who was fishing left handed and close because of tennis elbow in his right arm. He was really getting into the fish, hitting 4 steelhead the first day on a (Fish Magnet Summer Methow)! The biggest problem was all of the plucks, and short strikes from traveling fish. I was a zero with lots of on offs until the third day when I put on a sink 3 on my Rage head and started swinging it into the beach. Then my trip really began as I managed some nice fish mimicking my brother with a Fish Magnet Summer series Methow fly* that proved very good for Steelhead and Coho.

    Flash forward a couple of weeks and the same trip with Jeff at Grabflies. Fishing has been tough all over and the Skeena was no exception this year with a near record low steelhead run. We were going to have to work hard and step up to be successful. This time it was me that hit the ground running having learned my lesson! Prior to the trip I worked on a fly that would be smaller, darker, casts easily on a light polyleader and moves with very little current while showing off a red bead by the hook that would hopefully give the fish a point of attack so the hookup rate would go up with the fast traveling Skeena fish.

    It is basically an April Vokey Sugar Pop fly without the Rhea and an added black rabbit zonker tail with the flash right on top of the wing. Introducing the (Sugar Bunny) Man this fly really fit the bill. I could have called it the Labrador retriever because the tail looks like a dogs tail wagging the flash back and forth. Winner Winner Steelhead dinner!

    I had many grabs and fish on and lost along with a couple of dandy mid to upper teen steelhead caught the first two days. We think the Coho were the plucking fish, but we also lost some big steelhead deep into the battle.

    Jeff soon learned his lesson as I did, as he said "keeping one foot on the bank" and hit three steelhead on his third day, fishing a light tip and a light nice moving fly called the (Egg Dropping Methow Rhea Taco) one of the fish took him down the river and got off at the bank that we dubbed the Kispiox buck because of his 20# + size and nasty demeanor.

    Jeff also caught a some on a lightly weighted (Skagit Methow Leech) which is always a good fly to tie on.

    Later in the week the river cleared up some and the fish moved out from the bank and I fished another new fly that was incredibly successful, hooking three steelhead in one run on the final morning. Jeff and I managed a double as well, each catching a nice mid teen chromer!  I'm dubbing my new fly (the  Hoh Magnet) It is a highly visible mostly black fly with a dark blue flash wing and Lady Amhurst barbs that says "bite me" I will be adding it to the Fish Magnet fly collection as soon as I can tie some up and get them to Jeff to be available.

    See (customer photos) and view the awesome wild steelhead and the flies that we used to catch each!
