I am hoping to fish for Steelhead in the Carbon Monday and Tuesday. Is there any advice on colors, corkies and yarn, fast (head) or slower water (tail out), spinners vs. natural color Humpy eggs, or any thing else for me?
I have caught a Steelhead here in Oct. but I wasn’t fishing for them. It was an accidental catch.
Opinions are welcome.

I would say all the above mentioned spots/types of water could hold steelhead in the carbon.... just get out there and put in your time and maybe you'll hook up.

Wanna,

If you want to take a whack on Thursday or Friday, PM me and we'll hook up at the River Rd. parking lot. I suspect the water will be "prime time." Hopefully by then, there will be some more "visitors."

Did anyone go today? What about tomorrow? I work so I am not sure I can get in any fishing.
I tried to PM but I don't think it worked.

Did anybody go? Where do you normally fish for steelies on the Carbon. I thought the steelhead run is not that great these days. But I also heard if you put in your time you may have some success. I wouldn't mind trying this river out though since I live real close to the river (South Hill). Never fished it for steelies only pinks and silvers this past September. Any info is appreciated. :mrgreen:

Last saturday we fished the later 2 hrs of the day and only hooked into chums and cohos. Sunday I saw one guy pull 2 steelies out of the same hole, no salmon in sight anywhere. We fished from the middle of town up to main bend before the creek with no luck. Been using corkies and yarn, we're going in the am with bait this time. The two we saw caught came out of the middle of a very slow section. Not a lot of fish, but hey its close by.

wannafish i suggest just using bait considering how cold it is and stick to the slower water. Damn hard to feel a soft bite on just corkie/yarn they don't hold on very long.
