In an effort to provide anglers with the best information possible, the Lake Metroparks' Fishing Report provides up-to-date information on fishing hotspots, recent activity by anglers and management activities by the Park District. Learn where the fish are biting and where fish have been stocked within the parks.

If you wish to share photos or information about your recent angling success within the parks with us please contact us at

It's Spring...according to the calendar

Spring has arrived but you wouldn't know it when you look outside!

The local creeks are currently free of ice and very fishable. Reports are in that the water in the Big Creek at Helen Hazen Wyman looks good. Also worth checking this weekend would be Paine Creek at Indian Point or Mill Creek at Hogback Ridge.  These young men had a great time at Hogback during the blizzard on Wednesday.

The Chagrin River currently looks good for steelheading.  Public access to the Chagrin River is offered at Chagrin River Park and Pleasant Valley Park.  The Grand River is once again on the high side but could come down through the weekend.  Dress warmly and happy fishing.
