Reports of fresh steelhead in the creeks + Freshly stocked ponds providing great angling fun

Fish Club at Veterans Park - Trevor with Largemouth Bass 4/9/14
Both the Grand and Chagrin rivers are currently high and muddy. There have been multiple reports of fresh steelhead in the creeks. These include Mill Creek at Hogback Ridge, Paine at Indian Point and Big Creek at Helen Hazen Wyman.  All should fish well throughout the weekend!
