This is an excellent choice for drifting bait and faux-egg bobbers for steelhead. It handles enough weight to keep you in the zone even in the heavier current and higher water conditions associated with winter fishing. The extra length allows a more vertical line angle which means less current drag and better feel. Winter fish are not as aggressive as their summer-run cousins, but they are heavier and use the swifter water to their advantage. That’s where this rod really shines. It will handle Chinook salmon and all the smaller salmon as well – a really good all around drift rod.
