A New Partnership

Mertensia Springs Trout & Conservation Club, Ludlow Falls Ohio

Over the past few weeks we have been working closely with Sam Brown and the Mertensia Springs Family on bringing our passions for fly fishing together. The goal of offering a family oriented fly fishing experience or professional summer get away is what the Club is all about, and as of Monday, Steelhead Alley Outfitters was honored to be excepted as the only outfitters of choice to operate on the 200 + acre Club Property.

Last month we put alot of time scouting, fishing, shooting video, and walking the entire property. The multitude of fishing that can be experienced in a single day is more than any fly angler would ever ask for. You can take a scenic float for Wild Small Mouth Bass on the Still Water River, which is rumored to be the best smallie waters in Ohio. Kayak or Canoe one of 5 water way lakes for Large Mouth Bass, Crappie, Grass Carp, and pan fish. Wade the scenic Ludlow Creek for Brown & Rainbow Trout which are stocked by the club annually and hold year round in the cool spring water, but the added bonus is the Ludlow is also full of wild and aggressive Smallies. This has become by far one of my favorite small waters in Ohio, and is a dynamite fishing experience on a 3wt.

We are currently running day trips to fly fish at the club, and will be putting on two fly fishing camps in the near future. If you like what you see about the Mertensia Springs Trout and Conservation Club, and want more information on memberships, fishing opportunities, guided trips, and Club functions. Contact us directly and we will make sure to get you the information you need. The club property is simply beautiful and can handle , individual, group, family, our business fishing trips. Once you fish here you will want to come back again and again.
