Lake Erie Steelhead


Fishing for Steelhead on the fly is our bread and butter.  Being centrally located on the southern shore of Lake Erie which has been coined “Steelhead Alley,” we are in a perfect place to capitalize on this great resource.  The Alley remains one of the best Steelhead fisheries on the planet bar none!  This is largely due to the Steelhead program operated by the Ohio Division of Wildlife.  Quoting their website, “The Division of Wildlife annually stocks five Lake Erie tributary streams with 6-8 inch yearling Little Manistee River (Michigan) strain steelhead.  These fish migrate out of Lake Erie and spend their summer in the cooler part of the lake before returning to streams during the fall through the spring.  Steelhead caught by anglers in the streams typically average 25 inches long and weigh 5-6 pounds.  These fish have usually spent 2-3 summers out in the lake.  However, there are a good number of fish that are over 30 inches and weigh more than 10 pounds and have spent up to six summers in the lake.  Ohio’s primary steelhead streams are Vermilion, Rocky, Chagrin, and Grand Rivers along with Conneaut Creek.  Several other rivers get runs of stray steelhead….The fantastic fishing has been maintained by annual stocking and by the practice of most anglers to catch and release. ” 



The tributary streams of Lake Erie in Pennsylvania and Ohio offer three seasons of spectacular fly fishing for steelhead which means there is something for everyone. Despite many streams close proximity to the metropolitan areas such as Erie, Pennsylvania and Cleveland, Ohio, many anglers who travel here cannot believe how beautiful the fishery and scenery can be!  Whether you come in the fall of the year and see the exquisite colors, venture out in the cold of the winter and see the streams blanketed in snow, or in the spring when the streams are coming alive once again, our streams are a beautiful place to be no matter the season.


When you come to fish with Steelhead Alley Outfitters, we have your best interest in mind.  We know what it is like to work for a living and appreciate the hard earned dollar as much as the next guy.  That means that when you come fishing with us, you are fishing with guys who care about your time away as much as you do.  With that in mind, we will fish if we think there is a good shot at making a day of it.  However, if conditions are such that we don’t think it is worth your hard earned dollar, then we will say so!  We believe that by being a good steward of your money, we will gain your trust and business for many years to come.  Simply put, we don’t make many guarantees other than the fact that we will put you on fish and do everything we can to show you a great day on the water.  Many have come and experienced this fishery and our services first hand and will recommend us without hesitation.  Check out what they have to say on our testimonial page that continues to grow.


The truth is that the Steelhead fishing here has become a way of life and an addiction most haven’t been able to shake once they’ve tried it!  More and more angler’s are traveling great distances each year to fish Lake Erie and its tributaries and we hope you will do the same.
