    How do you rig up for bobber & jig fishing for steelhead?
    Do you use a swivel under the bobber?

    I have never done that for Steelhead but there a bunch of videos on you tube. Here is one where he did use a swivel and it makes cents to me.

    Well third time is a charm!!!! The mainline I use is Braid because it mends way better that momo which sinks.
    IMGP0187.JPG Well I hope the freezing weather is behind us for now.... fingerless gloves if you can get used to them.
    Good luck...

    I enjoy using neoprene gloves. Just dip your rod tip I the water every once in a while to get rid of the ice.

    Thats one purdy fish. Ive fished both Santiam's and Alsea but alas, no Steelhead for me. Normally just jig an bait, never tried the nightmare but I will now. Anyone on this forum fish the Idaho Snake/Boise/Clearwater rivers for Steelhead? Thanks.
