Grand and Chagrin Rivers are high and muddy.

Warm temperatures have filled the Grand and Chagrin Rivers with muddy snowmelt. Local creeks are also currently high and muddy. Predicted rain and/or snow will add to this problem.  The bonus to this will be that all the ice buildup will melt or be pushed out of the rivers and into Lake Erie.  This should open the rivers back up for steelhead fishing in the near future.  Be sure to check the water gauges before heading out to fish.
