    i live in bg does anybody know if there is anywhere closer than vermilion for steelies right now? i dont have boat, but will wade if need to.
     
  2. Someone else may elaborate a little more but somewhere on here there was talk of people catching them ( few ) in the Maumee. I dont really know anything about it , just passing on the little I know.

    thank you, i'll look around. i think i'm going to huron tonight to try the walleye bite. i'll let ya know what happens.
     
  4. Any river that drains into Lake Erie will get some steelheads running up it. Every year during the walleye run there are a few steelhead (that got lost and swam up the wrong river) caught in the Maumee. They are so few and far between though that you could probably target them all year and not catch one. If you really want to get into steelies in any kind of significant numbers you'd have to fish one of the stocked rivers.
