I think Fall Steelheading is the safest for fly fishers and I think October is the best month.

Winter Steelhead is really hit and miss even for veterans.

From Sacramento the Klamath, Trinity and Rogue are the most consistent, partly because they have adults and smaller Half-pounders.

During this time I fish mostly a floating line early and late in the day.

Over the years I have compiled my info from conversing with local guides, shops and serious anglers who really know a fishery well.

I contacted some of these folks recently to be sure my recommendations were fairly accurate.

If you want to go further I would try the Deshutes and/or Grand Ronde Rivers.

Going with a guide for Steelhead make sense to me.
