Still waiting for Steelhead...

While the weather has been beautiful lately, it hasn't helped the low water levels in the river.  Reports of steelhead staging in Lake Erie near the mouths of the river are still frequent but not much activity has been seen in the Chagrin or Grand Rivers.  We need some rain to bring the river levels up so that the steelhead can come in.  The most activity is still being reported off the short pier in Fairport and in Lake Erie off Arcola Creek.

Beautiful walleye caught off the short pier in Fairport.
