The Passing of one season begins with another..

Well here we are at an end to another great week of steelhead fishing on Ohio's Lake Erie tributaries. The lower rivers have been very productive and responsive to streamers, sculpins, and emerald shiner tube fly patterns either swung of stripped though deep pools, runs, and cuts in the river. Casting into the Lake Erie surf near tributary mouths for fresh and drop backs has been exciting and the hits are down right bone jarring!!! These fish peel into your backing and head right for Canada!!!
Our brook trout retreat in Pennsylvania is down to one weekend available for the season and we still have late summer family vacation retreats and golfing retreats available. Trout fishing in Central PA is heating up and Guide Jeremy Hoffman is gearing up for a host of local hatches on Bald Eagle Creek, Spring Creek, and the Little J. if interested in a fly fishing trip to central PA give us a call we are now taking bookings 419-466-9382. Our fall steelhead schedule is filling rapidly, so please don't wait to get your prime fall steelhead days- No deposit required to hold your date!!
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!!!
