Steelhead Activity Rises

As the temperature starts to rise in the air and in the water this tells the Steelhead that it’s a good time to start traveling upstream to spawn.


Another thing that tells the fish to travel upstream is the higher water levels from the spring rains, notifying the fish that they can make there was to shallow spots along the way to reach shallow gravel shoals where the females will drop their eggs in highly oxygenated water.

Warmer water increases the metabolism for adult fish, making them very hungry and possibly going after a lure in the water. As these conditions increase in the next week or two, the rivers from Clinton on Lake St. Clair to the Pere Marquette on Lake Michigan will be prime spots for steelhead fishing.

Now it is possible to catch some of these Steelhead from the same tackle you use for bluegill, I suggest using something bigger for these monster steelhead.

Get out there and afterwards tell us of your success in the forum , maybe post some pictures too!
