Well the Fall 2019 Steelhead Season is finally here!!! The fishing has been absolutely fantastic this past week thanks to a nice soaking rain that swelled the creeks and brought in a massive push of fresh Steelhead. We were ecstatic to be able to guide some youngsters and as you will see from the pictures they had a lot of fun! Best of luck to everyone on your upcoming Steelhead Season!
Proud Dad Steve and his daughter Hannah (11) didn't let the low clear flows stop them from having an incredible day on the Alley! HUGE congrats to both for their first ever Lake Erie Steelhead on the fly!! For the record Hannah caught more fish on the day than Dad..lol Great Job guys!!
I am so glad that Ray came back for a second chance at Steelhead fishing!! Last year Mother Nature screwed us with bad rains the night before his trip and made it really hard to fish. Ray fished really hard all day and although he hooked up a few times we weren't able to get any to the net. I blame it on the guide (me). But Ray came back and with his drive and determination was able to connect on his first ever Lake Erie Steelhead!! Huge congrats Ray and I'm very honored to of shared in the moment.

Also a huge congrats for falling in twice while catching the same fish lmao!!
