Default Best Late Winter/Early Spring

Best bait/lure for creek-run steelhead in the Late Winter/Early Spring?

Geez, I wish I could start a poll........

Anyway cast your vote

1. jig n' plastic
2. Body baits
3. Spoons/spinners
4. waxies
5. spawn/skein
6. shrimp
7. wigglers (mayfly larvae)
8. Other

I'm leaning towards spawn sacs and skein, seems like this would be the logical choice.

Default Difference??

In the Late winter the fishing can get pretty tough as the fish spread out sometimes but as always if yo hit the right water you can have double digit days. Pre-spawn the same baits work that did all winter: 1)spawn 2)shrimp, 3)waxies, 4) spinners etc. That is what I would use. Once the fish move up to spawn I know using egg imitations for fly fisherman work well and of course spawn will work also.
.....Tight lines and screaming drags to all
