Just clicked up this thread and had to smile.

Smallmouth bass, steelhead (and toss in a good run of Shad in April-May) and it sounds like your talking about the Russian River in Sonoma County, CA.

Steelhead in the winter (assuming the river wasn't blowen out of shape ... which is was far too often), then wait for the Shad to show up and play with them down by Del Rio, summer go find the bass in the deeper sections of the river above Healdsburg.

Only problem is, northern Calif. is 'bassin country' for most of the folks. Never could get into that, other than the observation that the amount of money I spend on spey equipment is/was "small change" compared to what these guys would drop to catch a fish I wouldn't consider eating.
