    what can I expect for scale loss on a spring run steelhead? Planning a trip soon and would like to mount one. Just wondering if they pop their scales like a summer coho?

    They should be pretty tough skinned as this is their spawning time. The only ones that usually give you problems are summer runs, and even that can be minimized.

    That’s what I was thinking also. Get an artificial head and good to go. Thanks for confirming.
