Hey Guys,

Wondered if you could suggest a good rod and reel set up for steelehead and salmon? I want to purchase it for my father-in-law. He will mainly fish lures, worms and bait.

Any suggestions will help. I am a Southern California boy, so the biggest set up we need is for lake stocked 1 pound bows.

Also he lives in Whiterock BC, any day trips (Lakes or Rivers) you could suggest, as well as time of year?

Thanks in advance

If you're looking for one set up, that can do all that (worms, lures, etc.), I'd go with an Ugly-stik matched with a Penn International series spinning reel. Go into your local store and ask them also, cause I know you guys get salmon down there, and the same stuff should apply. But if you're FIL is like, just into float fishing for stealheads, then like, I like the set up I have: Shimano Convergence with a Quantum baitcast, but it's not a worm throwing rod at all. But definitly go into your local shop and ask them what an all-round river salmon/steelhead set up would be.
