Float Fishing for Steelhead in Low and Clear Water - Everything You Need to Get Set Up

Float fishing for steelhead can be challenging, low and clear water conditions can make landing some fish even more challenging.
Here in Steelhead Alley, more specifically Erie, Pennsylvania, we are commonly faced with low and clear water conditions. These conditions cause the fish to be easily spooked and can make catching steelhead challenging. In this video, FishUSA Pro Shop representative Josh Feltenberger goes over some steelhead tackle that he has found success with in these challenging conditions.
