Fly fishing for steelhead can be the most rewarding or the most frustrating fishing you’ll ever attempt. We target steelhead in the lower Au Sable in October and November and again in March and April.
The fall run fish come up the river to gorge themselves on salmon eggs and then stay over winter to spawn in the spring. These aggressive fish can be caught on swung streamers, stripped streamers, eggs, and nymphs. They’re called chrome bullets for a reason–they fight better pound-for-pound than any other freshwater fish. Book a trip for October or November to find out what all the fuss is about.
