With all the recent rains the streams have been flowing better then they have this time of year for as long as I can remember. Pressure is definitely there, I see Spring Creek every day and there’s a lot of guys on the streams. I don’t mean to sound pessimistic but Spring Creek fishes wonderfully year round. 365 days a year when its not a flood you can catch fish. I stand on the bank and ponder, where are all these guys in the fall? The sulphur hatch is starting to kick, the crowds enforce that my findings are fact! While I personally feel certain sections have better hatches then others people are definitely not taking advantage of the plenty of solitude the stream has to offer.
Spending time with family and friends and passing on the fly fishing heritage:

The Maumee and Portage rivers are still providing excellent opportunities for White bass and small mouth bass on the fly, and will continue to get better as we move toward warmer summer days. I have spent alot of time lately with clients targeting the white bass and having a great time.
Our new warm water page is up at our http://steelheadalleyoutfitters.com/ website, and we have added another great new member to the SAO team to help anglers accomplish their spey and fly fishing goals. I will have this new and exciting addition posted shortly, with schools and trip information to follow. I know you will be as excited as we are to have this gentleman with the SAO team.
Tight Lines and Good fishing

We will be doing several Fly fishing schools this year for Trout, Steelhead, Spey, warm water fly fishing in conjuntion with area fly shops and outfitters. I also will be offering again this year our popular on the water fly fishing clinic for steelhead this fall. I will be touring the Great Lakes during Orvis days and tying at several fly shops in MI, OH, PA, WI and NY starting again this Saturday at the Orvis Dayton store and then off to Cinncinati.
Our new tube fly line is just about complete with several new patterns coming out the first of June on our fly assortments page. I will have our hosted events page updated shortly with many great destination fly fishing trips and experiences to choose from accross the country.Back to the fishing:
We have been catching more and more small mouth bass as the spring slowly progresses into summer, and we have switched to fishing to a host of warm water species. The White bass have entered the Portage and Maumee Rivers in hordes and I have started doing trips for them this week. Hot patterns were chartreuse and black double bunnies and leeches. The local reservoirs, ponds, and lakes are heating up we have hit large mouth bass in the 5-6 pound range as well as Blue gill in the 1-2 pound range. Bass and pan fish make for an exciting and enjoyable day of fly fishing and We have access to several local secluded lakes and ponds loaded with trophy bass and blue gill!!!
thank you and good fishing!!!
