BACK TO BACK Bobber Downs | Steelhead Fishing | Bobber and Jig Fishing
I hope you’ve all had a chance to get out on the water and try your luck with the Winter Steelhead, now that the weather has warmed up along with most of our local PNW Rivers.
I decided to take a break from Winter Steelhead Fishing and headed down to the coast to do some Surf Fishing. I knew it was going to be windy but it ended up being more than I wanted to deal with, so I was left with two options, go fish for steelhead on one of the Coastal Rivers / Tributaries, or head back home. I’m not one to throw away a perfectly good day but with so many fishing options at my disposal I decided to do some Steelhead Fishing.
I went with to different setups, a spinning rod for fishing with spoons, spinners and other lures, and a bait casting setup for bobber and jig fishing.
I went with the nightmare jig to start since it has proven itself worthy in the past. I added a bit of bait to the hook as well. Within 15 minutes of being at this spot I had back to back bobber downs!
This wasn’t the easiest spot to land a fish considering the huge drop off down to the water. There was just enough of a foot hold to scale down the wall and to a good spot to land the fish.
They were both natives and quickly released after removing the jig. Neither fish left the water, it was kind of nice to be in such a good spot for a quick and easy release.
We have some great coastal rivers and tributaries. Trask River, Wilson River, Kilchis River, Nehalem River, Siletz River, Alsea River, Big Creek, Gnat Creek, just to name a few. All have good runs of steelhead at some point.
