Amongst the various controversial techniques used to stimulate stale Steelhead in low water, “stoning” is a common one. Jim Teeny explains this well in some of his videos. I accidentally stumbled onto a technique that suited me better. I would send my Labrador Retriever into the River and wake up those dozing fish. The dog had fun, I had fun and I think the Steelhead got a charge out of it, too! There’s nothing worse than dying of boredom. Ask an old person!
