I read in the paper that the SM River has steelhead in it. I'm assuming there aren't that many and they are not very big (only because it is the first I've heard of them), but has anyone ever fished there? Is it worth an exploratory trip? Even if they are small, it'd be neat to catch one just to see it.
It is true that steelhead do come into the Santa Margarita river near the coast. They are mostly in the stretch of the river on Camp Pendleton and no fishing for them is allowed. Maybe some day we will be able to fish for steelhead here in SCal, but not now.
