Steelhead Plug Fishing Basics w/ Josiah Darr (Video)

Professional Fishing Guide, Josiah Darr, explains his basic steelhead plug fishing setup, which he uses on Oregon & Washington coastal rivers for steelhead and salmon. Josiah tends to use many of the Yakima Bait Mag Lip plugs, with P-Line CXX leader material. This setup results in a very durable, strong plug system, so that he can continue using the same "runners" trip after trip.

Josiah uses a braid mainline so that it can be very strong, but with a small diameter to let the plugs dive down. This setup is rigged on Lamiglas XCC plug fishing rods like the XCC802 and XCC803.
