Winter Steelhead Flies

for Washington, Oregon, Northern California, British Columbia, Great Lakes Steelhead

Think big, large profile, lots of movement (a fly that will motivate a Steelhead to move in cold water). Other than that summer steelhead flies can work in the winter, and winter steelhead flies can work in the summer. I use Moal leeches all year round with excellent results. An exception to the above would be for very clear low water in the winter, then think small bright and flashy. Large Intruder Flies get the job done.
