Winter steelhead are starting to show up in the Yaquina and Big Elk. No hatchery fish are released into the Yaquina/Big Elk so most fish caught are wild. January through March is the peak for the wild winter steelhead in the Yaquina/Big Elk. Bobber fishing with bait/jigs, drift fishing and casting lures are effective ways to catch these fish.
