    I'm visiting from Alaska for a few days starting Saturday and would love to catch some steelhead. Our runs don't start until late August. Any help would be very appreciated.

    CooL my cousin-in- law knows his way around. He's just not a fly guy.
    I brought both floating and sink tip line. I'm a nympher at heart. Any specific techniques I need to know about?

    The truth is any of them are best for walk/wade fishing. To find summer steelhead on them, just access the river at an access point (bridges, hatcheries, public fishing access sites) or walk a short distance through the woods. Then just read the water and fish the type of water steelhead like.
