After talking to you the other night and reading this thread, I am very intrigued about this 'stillwater' steelheading. I read an article in the Steelhead Journal about stillwater steelheading but they were fishing down lower on the Columbia at the mouths of rivers and places like Drano Lake that caught my attention. It just seems that hooking up with a summer-run in such a wide open area would be blast...that fish could really tear you up with all that room to run.
