Happy Thanksgiving! Steelhead Alley River Report...

First off Happy Thanksgiving to everyone, and a special thank you to everyone who we had the opportunity to fish with so far this year!! Secondly we really are looking forward to fishing with each one of you coming up after the holiday... We were also hoping for some more rain and good flows to go with the turkey and stuffing!!

The little bit of rain we got last week is here and gone with the water levels in Ohio and PA are back on the low and clear side. The good news is that alot of rain/snow is showing in this weeks forecast, and if we get it expect another bump in the flows and better fishing for all...

Last week we made the difficult decision to cancel a good portion of that weeks trips and briefly halted our guide operations, those who have fished with us over the years have come to understand and trust us to make the best possible call on the fishing conditions for the alley. Yes a few steelhead can be caught during these dismal times, but guiding you during that weeks conditions especially with the large groups we had scheduled would not have been right on our part. For those we missed out on fishing with...We will see all you guys in December!!!

We all have alot to be thankful for as fly fishers on the Alley!!! Growing up and living in the region nearly my entire life, you really never truly appreciate the beauty the "Alley" has to offer.

We have alot to be thankful for on the alley!
