Find the Right Reel: Learn More About Salmon & Steelhead Reels

Reel in your trophy catch with a reel crafted for salmon and steelhead.

You’ll need a fishing reel with the right feel, sensitivity and strength for these aggressive game fish. Shop the top brands angler’s trust, including Shimano® and Okuma®. Choose from a variety of sizes, technologies and gear ratios.

Nab your next salmon or steelhead with a smooth, strong and silent reel. Many reels are forged from ultra-durable aluminum. One-piece reels often offer better leverage and power. Keep in mind these factors:

  • Line Capacity: You’ll need a reel with extra line capacity to fish salmon and steelhead. Your capacity should be able to handle moderately deep water depths and handle these large species of fish.
  • Ball Bearings: The more ball bearings, the smoother your reel works, especially under pressure. Anti-rust bearings add longevity to your reel.
  • Gear Ratio: A lower gear ratio delivers the added power you need to battle with salmon and steelhead.
