|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.
