Guided Steelhead Fishing

What to expect on your guided steelhead fishing trip

The steelhead fishing on Lake Erie tributaries is what originally brought me to this area. I quickly realized that Conneaut, OH is centrally located in Steelhead Alley. We are 15 minutes from Elk Creek, 30 minutes from Walnut Creek or an hour from 20 mile Creek. Conneaut creek is my back yard and my favorite creek. We can walk right down to the water! Ashtabula is 15 minutes away, the grand is 30 minutes away and Chagrin is an hour drive.
Private water options available call 717-496-1290 for details.

Where we will fish that day depends on the water conditions and the time of year. I love to fly fish but have no problem bait fishing with noodle rods, depending on conditions and what the clients want to do. I will personalize your trip after we talk and I find out how you prefer to fish. I personally fish these waters daily. I will let you know what the conditions are and will try to reschedule if conditions are unfavorable. I can fish with up to 3 anglers. After that, I bring in another guide to help. We specialize is guided flyfishing trips (spin fishing options available)

Guided steelhead trips are 1 or 2 people per guide. If you have additional anglers we will add on additional guides as needed.

$100 deposit (per groups of up to 2) on all reservation.
