I will have some extended time off work starting May 1, 2015, and would like to use this time to toss the double hand rod to some steelhead. After doing a little research, it seems like kind of an awkward time to target them.

Anyone have any ideas for May steelhead fishing locations? I open to going anywhere.

Thank you
Chris

There are certainly some places where you can fish steel in may around the skeena as was suggested earlier. This is also a good time to fish for steelhead in S/E AK as well. Keep in mind though may is a peak month for steelhead spawning so as you say it is "kind of an awkward time" and you have to choose your rivers very carefully to avoid catching spawners or kelts.

Plan a trip to Portland in mid May for the Sandy River Speyclave. Test cast lots of rods, watch a few demonstrations, visit with lots of like minded two hand casters, and fish the Sandy in the mornings and evenings for mint bright early returning Summer fish.

May can be on the late side for the erie tribs. Depending on the year, most of the fish can be long gone. Some of the bigger tribs could have dropbacks if you want to fish for them.

There are also early run Coho Salmon moving by the Park. Go up to the boat ramp and 'fish up.' :lildevl:
