Steelhead and Smallmouth in the Rivers

Fishing this weekend could be dependent on the amount of rain we get today.  Take the chance and get out on the Grand or Chagrin River as rain is predicted all next week.  Currently conditions are fishable on both rivers.  Several reports of nice smallmouth (most caught while fishing for steelhead) have come in from the Grand River this week.  All Lake Metroparks creeks are fairly low but there are still some fish holding in the deeper pools.  Veterans Park and Hidden Lake are still fishing strong for Largemouth Bass and panfish.  Grab your kid, or your best friend and go wet a line!

A successful night at Lake Metroparks Fish Club for Clay!
