RE:California Steelhead help

Jared -

Mashed for me, I grind mine off with a dremel tool on stainless hooks and wish they made more barbless models in production.

Eric -

I read that it was best to fish outgoing tide to get the best swing... that sounds like tidewater to me. Are these rivers short coastal streams? A fish in tidewater must be spankin' chrome bright. Are they all winter fish or are there summer fish as well?

Water temps may average a lot warmer in CA than where I am used to being for winter steel; perhaps they move for wet flies on a dry line even in December?
