Comment: Steelhead in Cattaraugus Creek generally average 3-6 pounds, but fish from 8-12 pounds are common so fairly heavy equipment is required. Spinning rods of 7'-9' in length, capable of casting 1/2 ounce lures and using 6-12 lb. test lines are needed. Fly rods from 8'-10' in length that handle 6-10 weight lines work well for landing these fish. It is estimated that about 30% of the steelhead on the Catt are wild or native fish. For these wild fish to survive they must have something to eat. Again the Catt fits the bill. It is a virtual bug factory. Turn over almost any rock in the river and a variety of nymphs will scurry away. The steelhead of the Catt gobble these abundant nymphs up like candy. A well presented stonefly nymph on the fly rod is hard to beat and is sure to bring explosive excitement.
