The rod holder is Ram Rod fly rod holder with a Ram Tough Claw small clamp base. You can obviously buy it from ramrod. I purchased mine with the canoe from Hornbeck.

As for the "off-topic" stuff; I've always wanted to go after Great Lakes steelhead as I don't know how to get through the October 16th to next opener period. Something I've wanted to do but have yet to do it.

My suggestion is the Niagara River. Take a drift charter out of Lewiston. You'll need gear. Multiple Gore Tex layers, face protection, even goggles at times. Cold, cold cold.. but so worth it. Most Captains have rods and tackle so don't worry about that. Three-way rigs with pencil weights bounced off the rocks.

My avatar is from Lake Ontario in Winter. Granted it's a Lake Trout but I have plenty of Chromie pics as well.

Enjoy!

Your best bet is steelhead alley and Erie tribs. Erie tribs have statistically higher populations of fish than Ontario tribs and the catch rates are much higher. A little further away but worth it if your new, better chance at getting into something. Hell, I’m not new and still don’t do great on Ontario tribs. I have a tough time hooking steelhead on the fly rod

The last two weeks of October and the first week or two of November generally finds good numbers of steelhead in the Salmon River, and the water temperatures are usually warm enough that the fish are still very active biters and also jumpers. It was cold last week, and the majority of the run was staying down in Douglaston Salmon Run, the pay to play Kingdom in the lower river, but as of last Thursday, the fish were moving upstream. Friends who fished in Pulaski over the weekend report good action, and the DSR reports indicate their action slowed down until yesterday, which could be a new push in from the Lake. The forecast is for some warmer weather the next few days and that could light things up a bit more. Crowds from the Salmon run were diminishing last week, and the steelheaders don't show usually until November. I'll be knee deep somewhere up there tomorrow until Thursday, and then 4 days next week. The Niagara in winter produces well, but the fish are logy, and while Erie has three states dumping smolts, it also gets crowded beyond belief. And after mid-November, when the water temps drop into the 40's and below, the fish are just not as spunky as the "Indian Summer" run . That's why I say GO NOW!

I went up last week, didn't see much action except for a few zombie kings in the upper part of the river. I did catch a monster creek chub however.

Beartooth, there are some trout streams in the Catskills such as the Esopus near Phoenicia that I believe have special regulations that allow you to fish for trout until November 30. Brown and rainbows.
