Double-handed options around Red Deer, Alberta?
So just as I was getting into Steelhead fishing on the Clearwater and Grande Ronde, I get a job in Red Deer. (It's the only thing I landed all spring...)
I'd really like to continue using a DH rod, but until I can afford a switch, I'll have an 8wt T&T and either a 35' 460-ish grain Scandi head, or a 25' 510 grain Skagit to work with.
I've read that the brown trout in the Red Deer river are nice, if temperamental. Do I stand any chance with the gear I've got?
Anyone been to Red Deer and have any advise on flies and presentation? Or even a decent beginners hole?
I've never extensively done any kind of fishing other than double handed wet fly fishing for steelhead, so I'm all the way back at square one up here...
Thanks in advance.
