Weekly Fishing Tip

Tips for targeting steelhead this fall If you decide to target steelhead on Michigan’s rivers while in a boat, there are two reel options you can turn to. Consider offering bait underneath a centerpin style reel, which are becoming popular with steelhead anglers. The line will come off smoothly allowing for float-suspended baits to work long distances downstream, plus it offers drag-free drifts. 

If you’re not confident on a centerpin style or you’re a novice angler, try a level-wind reel. It allows you to just drop the float behind the boat and wait for the strike. It will take care of the hard work while reeling in your catch by guiding the line on properly. Now is the perfect time to target steelhead! For more information, visit the steelhead page on the Michigan Fish and How to Catch Them website at Michigan.gov/dnr.
