Fly Fishing for Steelhead

Fly Fishing For Ontario Steelhead

Steelhead are one of the hardest fighting fish to catch in Ontario. Fly fishing for steelhead is a challenge and a whole lot of fun and one of the most rewarding ways to catch these acrobatic feisty fish. Some days guys call them the fish of 1000 casts and other days you'll hook and land over 20.

There are a few good methods for fly fishing for steelhead.

Indicator Nymphing: Most anglers choose to nymph fish with indicators.

Euro Nymphing: Some more advanced anglers are now using advanced Euro Style nymphing methods for even more success.

Spey Fishing: There is also a growing number of fly anglers starting to target Ontario Steelhead using Spey fishing methods adapted for our rivers.

Streamer Fishing: Even traditional streamer fishing can be productive when steelhead are aggressive or anglers are faced with low water conditions.

Learning to fly fish for steelhead: The fastest way to learn how to fly fish for steelhead and to gain the confidence that you're doing it right is to hire a good guide or take a fly fishing for steelhead class.
