steffen News / Articles Leave a Comment

For quite a while Salmon Junkies has been trying to find a steelhead program able to fill up the dreadful gab that probably most Salmon Junkies have in the calendar in February and March. Scotland has been the choice for many anglers, but we would like to bring a unique and refreshing programme for all the many European Salmon Junkies, who are suffering hard this time of year. After months of hardcore due diligence, we decided last winter to pack our bags and head for Oregon. And what a fabulous test trip we had “over there”.

We know that steelhead fishing is an entirely different gig with so much secrecy involved, among the special technique. The chance of catching these magnificent fish can be really difficult without a perfect match between place and fishing guides but here it is:

Follow Salmon Junkies to Oregon February and March 2013 for some of the best winter steelheads available on the market!

In 2013 we offer three prime weeks, where you will be able to fish 5 – 8 of Oregon’s best Steelheads Rivers during 7 days, in company with the best and most innovative steelhead guides in US: Marty Sheppard, Brian Silvery, Jeff Hickman and Jad Donaldson. These four steelheads warriors will share their well-kept secrets in the chase of Oregon’s strong winter steelheads. They will be showcasing some pretty special and unique places and share the most awesome modern Skagit technique. You will be jet boating or rafting some fantastic steelhead rivers searching for the mythical Steelhead.
