What to pack? This is big water expect (sometimes) big fish.

ROD SIZE: 5 to 9 weights 6 weight is best. I bring a 6 weight if the water is big and needs a bit more.

LINE: Depending on the water the best right now is a floating line with a sink tip. You never know. Bring a sinking line and a floating line. This is steel head fishing be prepared.

LEADER: This water is grayish and short leaders are okay 5.5lb, 4X or 6.5lb, 3X or 8lb, 2x or 10lb. The 4X is a good middle of the road. 3X work well if you’re optimistic. Use your own judgment and capabilities on this.

FLIES: It is going to depend on the rain and the water level as to the fishing and the flies. The stand by that you want to take is: Doug of Marble Mountain will be stocking the most popular, so bring money or fly tying material. The following are the standards for Steelhead:
