All fishing areas are accessible today . Weight: 1/2 oz -5/8 oz Leader: 3-4 ft Colors: Try some brighter colors today to start with Pink head /Pink sparkle tail - Black head /Green sparkle tail - Orange head/ Yellow fire tigertail. - White head / Xmas lights tail Target Steelhead: -Just a few tipsa we are seeing more and more caught in the Maumee -stop in or give us a call for more detail,we have a complete flyshop as well Steelhead, the big bruiser rainbow trout that summer in Lake Erie and migrate into the tributaries(Maumee River and Swan Creek for example) once they cool to troutlike temperatures, are ganging up offshore and feeding heavily. Steelhead are just giant rainbow trout. These rainbows are migrating trout – meaning that they spawn in freshwater rivers and streams, move out into the Lake to forage and grow, and then return freshwater rivers to spawn. Unlike salmon, trout do not die after breeding but return to their spawning grounds year after year .Walleye anglers are reporting steelhead action on their trolled baits out on the lake and we are seeing an increased number here in the river as the water is cold and relatively clear. While walleye are excellent table fare, they are not known as acrobats, so when the line starts to rise to the surface and that bait is slammed there is a good chance its a steelie in the other end. The rule is this: If the water temperature is below 40°F, steelhead trout hold at the bottom of deep pools. If the water is 40°F or above, the fish move into faster, shallower riffles to stage for the upcoming spawn. SPINNING RODS: A good 7 to 9 foot, medium-action rod with a sensitive tip will handle the meanest of fish and has enough length and sensitivity to manipulate drifting line and lure/baits. SPINNING LINE: Fluorocarbon is invisible in the water, which is important for not alarming the excellent vision of steelhead. Don’t exceed 8 to 10-lb. test for larger waters with bigger fish in the 8 – 12 lb. range. In small streams with average fish of 5 – 7 lbs., the line should be reduced to 8 or even 6-lb. test. Small, single-tail grubs in white or black can be very effective as a generic baitfish imitation. A popular and highly effective setup is a black or brown hair jig tipped with two or three waxworms. Among the best is small Jig with black hair and a bright red head. Minnows work well, but hook them properly. Run the hook through the lower lip and out of the upper lip, allowing the minnow to swim in the water. Threading it through the body of the baitfish will kill it, and not appeal to any trout. As with all drift systems, we will need to apply weight in order to get our presentation down to the fish. The amount of weight required will depend upon depth of water and rate of flow. Start with 1/4 once split shot, then add or subtract weight as needed to keep the fly, spawn or minnow in the feeding zone near the bottom. We want to maintain the all important tic-tic-tic as the bait bounces along the bottom. Watching experienced Drift method fishermen, you will notice they are continually making adjustments to the float and weight to achieve and maintain the tic-tic-tic. WEATHER Today Increasing clouds, with a high near 45. Light southeast wind increasing to 8 to 13 mph in the morning. Tonight A chance of showers, mainly after 10pm. Cloudy, with a low around 38. East wind around 10 mph becoming south after midnight. Friday Mostly cloudy, with a high near 66. Breezy, with a southwest wind 16 to 23 mph. Have fun, be safe and good luck fishing

Maumee River Report: LEVEL-580. TEMP- 39.5 degrees Barometer: 30.44 inHg and rising Wading to Bluegrass Island is possible Clarity-10 inches Sunrise : 7:35 AM (First cast) Sunset: 7:48 PM (Last cast) Spring is notorious for rapidly changing weather, and erratic weather leads to unpredictable fishing. Spring might be coming, but there are still some brutal days out there in the early part of the year. Because of the fickle nature of early season walleye, fishing this time of year can be pretty boring until you locate a pocket of fish, but once you do, it can be game on. Patience is the key to making it through those lulls – Stick with what you’re confident in, and you’ll eventually find them. When the water’s still cold, you can have some amazing days – but day in and day out the reality is a little different. There are a lot more one or two fish days to be had than days where you haul in the limits. Keep that in mind as you prepare for your trip and set your expectations accordingly. Yesterday we saw a few good catches come out of the river again mostly singles and doubles. jerome Rd rapids, Ft Meigs area and the towpath seemed to produce the most bites-Some decent action at Blue grass ,Buttonwood and schroders farm area. Bluegrass seems to be the area to get some steelhead--very cool to see an increase in this species in the Maumee. All fishing areas are accessible today . Weight: 1/2 oz -5/8 oz Leader: 3-4 ft Colors: Try some brighter colors today to start with Pink head /Pink sparkle tail - Black head /Green sparkle tail - Orange head/ Yellow fire tigertail. - White head / Xmas lights tail Today Sunny, with a high near 34. Northeast wind 8 to 14 mph. Tonight Mostly clear, with a low around 17. Southeast wind 3 to 6 mph. Thursday Mostly sunny, with a high near 44. Southeast wind 5 to 9 mph.

Maumee River Report: LEVEL-580.6 slowly on the rise TEMP- 39.5 degrees Barometer: 30.25 inHg and steady - Wading to Bluegrass Island is possible Clarity-5 inches Sunrise : 7:37 AM (First cast) Sunset: 7:47 PM (Last cast) Very slow bite yesterday--we did hear some reports of a few fish caught in the Fort Meigs area, A few singles at bluegrass and Jerome Rd Rapids. Not much else anywhere. The rain we got yesterday didnt do a whole lot to the water level, the ground just absorbed most of it, but we expected to continue to slowly rise throughout the day as the water from Ft. Wayne makes it our way. Looks like one more cold day(wednesday) then a nice warming trend will be on us. All fishing areas are accessible today .
