It just might be time to fish!

Predictions are looking good for a beautiful weekend of fishing!  The recent thaw and rain has cleared the rivers of ice and debris.  The Grand River is high and muddy, however the Chagrin River is headed in the right direction for some possible steelhead fishing this weekend.  And the great news is that the high water forced a push of steelhead up into the local creeks.  Reports of steelhead caught have come in today from both Big Creek and Paine Creek.  Public access to Paine Creek is offered at Indian Point Park.  Public access to Big Creek can be found at Helen Hazen Wyman Park and Liberty Hollow.  Dress warmly and get out to enjoy some winter fishing!
