People have been fishing the clinton and catching steelies there this spring.Use either minnows or spawn and float it down through the slower streches below yates dam.Thats or try bottom bouncing spawn.many people fly fish the clinton using various egg paterns also.Good Luck
How exaclty do you rig and fish spawn? I've been reading alot and can't figure it out. I tried yates for the heck of it today and I just was useing powerbait egg clusters on a #6 red hook about 2 feet under a splitshot. I didn't get anything. I was wondering, when steelies hit do you know right away or what? I'm not used to fishing rivers and wasn't really sure what to look for to detect a hit. If anyone wants to fish Yates tommorow, shoot me a PM. I have the whole day off
