Steelhead fishing on the lower Ausable River has been good for the last week. Great river flow and water temps around 40 degrees has energized these chrome brutes. Fish are spread from Foote dam to the river mouth. Focus on the deep runs. Hot shotting with Wiggle Wart and Willy Worms working best. Gold and orange and the pirate pattern working best. Drifting spawn bag also working well.
