Steelheading 201 will focus on honing and building on skills learned in our 101 class in actual fishing scenarios.  Chagrin River Outfitters guides will show you advanced rigging techniques, how to cover water effectively, and how to fish runs, holes, cuts, and buckets.  At the end of the day students future steelhead outings will be more focused, efficient, and productive.  

Lunch and drinks included. Students will need, rod/reel (yes we will be fishing), waders, dress for weather, current Ohio fishing license. Location will be decided based on fishing conditions that day.

Musky Trips

Location: Primarily lakes, but will be determined at the time of the trip.

Duration: Trips will last 4-5 hours. Weekday trips will start between 4-4:30 and go until dark. Weekend trips will begin based on the conditions at the time.

Timing:  Post spawn fishing in April/May is good, as is June. Fishing stays good until November. Extreme heat in the summer (late July/August) might shut fishing down, or limit it to mornings and evenings.
Weekday evening trips will be either Tuesday or Thursday. Other weekdays can be done by request. 

Gear:  Guides can provide all gear and flies.  11wt and 12 wt fly rods, floating, intermediate, and sinking lines.   Large 8-12 inch flies.

Expectations: Not for the beginner fly fisherman. Anglers should be able to double haul, and cast a 12wt comfortably for 4-5 hours. Expect to throw large streamers (6-10”) on 11wt & 12wt rods using full sinking lines, for large predatory fish ranging in size from 30”-50”  A good day of fishing is typically getting 2-3 shots at fish in 4 hours of fishing.

Cost: $400 for one or two anglers.  Anglers must take turns with two anglers on board.
