What an amazing week so far!!!!

Temps have been in the 70's and steelhead fishing in t-shirts, seems totally unfair. The great thing is we have been fishing in complete solitude for the past two weeks targeting drop backs in the lower rivers and stream mouths. The bad news is the water temps have reached around 56 degrees and we will be calling it a season really quick.
We found several great holding pools with temps in the low 50's with tons of fiery steelhead. Dead drifting size 14 pastel eggs, wiggle stones, and caddis were the ticket this week so far. Swinging and stripping streamers and Sculpin’s through the pools also yielded some exciting takes and acrobatic jumps.

We are already getting into a few Smallmouth Bass and it will only get better! If you are interested in Smallmouth on the fly, we have already begun taking bookings. I would like to thank John, Pat, Jay, Joel, Graham, Jeremy, John, and Joe for all their hard work this steelhead season, and for some amazing memories!

Patti, Bob, and Flick thanks for coming steelhead fishing, and for a great time on the river, and off. Herb thanks for all the great video footage and hard work on the water filming, and photographing on Monday, my entire staff appreciates every thing you have done!
Last but not least, a special thank you to D'arcy Egan of the Cleveland Plain Dealer and Joe Thomas of the Cleveland Browns, for an amazing experience, great fly fishing, and the fantastic top notch video production crew, I can't wait to see the show!!
Thank you for the opportunity and invitation. I will be at Chagrin River Outfitters this Saturday fly casting and tying during Orvis days!

This will be quite an event with a great staff there in Chagrin Falls! Hope to see you guys there!!!
Many more Steelhead guide trip pictures to come!!! To everyone who fished with our staff this year, it was truly amazing! 152 incredible days of fly fishing for Steelhead and Trout on Steelhead Alley with fantastic anglers from 30 different states! We will see you all again in the fall, so have a great Summer!!!!

We have just a few more steelhead trips to complete this week and we will switch to targeting Smallmouth bass, and a multitude of other warm water species on the fly this summer.
See you all on the river, and remember you can call us at any time, for absolutely anything in pursuit of fish on the fly!!! 419-466-9382
Thank you again and good fishing!!!!
