Fall Steelhead fishing slow to start

While conditions on the Grand and Chagrin River were looking hopeful earlier in the week, unfortunately the rain has returned.  Fishing this weekend will be largely dependent on how much more rain we get.  The good news is the higher water in the rivers has brought some steelhead in from Lake Erie.  Scattered reports have come in from the more persistent anglers but no big numbers yet.  Be sure to check the river gauges before heading out. 
Coming up empty so far this season
