Ohio's Conneaut Creek Steelhead

Conneaut Creek in northeasternmost Ohio receives plenty of attention from fly fishers this time of year, as well it should. Water levels allow steelhead to reach the uppermost portions of the river, and the peak fishing on the river lasts from November through March. Deborah Weisberg writes about current conditions on Conneaut and talks with steelhead guide and author John Nagy, who describes some of the river’s idiosyncrasies: “Although Pennsylvania steelhead are a mix of strains, including domesticated rainbows, Ohio’s Little Manistees are a wild steelhead from naturally reproducing fish in Michigan’s Little Manistee River. They run in late winter and early spring, although some trickle in during the fall.” In the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
