    First run??? did i miss something? we have been catching good numbers of them past painesville on the grand for about a week.....
     

  3. its about time anyone going to conneaut tommorrow
     
  4. Hopefully we get more than the 1/4 inch they are predicting. The Chagrin at least needs a HUGE blowout.
     
  5. Aghh waiting for my new wading boots to get here is killing me. Can't wait for this cold front to come through.

    Out here, Rocky, Vermillion, etc, things have been slow unless you're fishing the river mouths.

    How big of runs do you think some of the river will get? 1,000s of steelies?

    I hope the steelies get in the vermilion river soon! I can't take this anymore!!! the wait is killing me! figures I'd pick the bad year to start fly fishing. I practice all year on bass and gills so I can finaly catch me a steelie and then they do not come in cause the waters to warm and low. guess I will just have to wait longer. hopefully it will be worth the wait......
    hey like your signature steelinatrout. take my spot I take out your knees. haha. glad I go fishing with you always. that way I still have my knees and can still take your spot all day long! haha! now go get your waders fixed so we can go fish some more!
     
  15. Stopped at the rocky this evening near dark. Running high, but not as high as it should be for over 2" of rain throughout the watershed. For those who know the river, most of the horse ford is covered. Completely on the side away from the road, within about 10' of the edge near the road. Rockcliff looked high, but could still be fishable around the edges. Color wasn't too dark. Might be ready by Friday.

    Thanks for posting that!
    I sadly understood that. :D
     
  17. Yes, stopped down after work tonight. Very muddy, chocoalate milk muddy. And fast wr movement. did not see any signs of fish. Did not get a hit on anything. Will probably be good once the flow slows down in a day or two.
     
  18. Wow the Chagrin is at 295 cfs right now, it sure clears out fast now.
     
  19. Bassman, the Chagrin dropped as far as flow to a good level, but if you saw it you wouldn't like the color. We need a couple more blowouts before good flow will equal good color.
     
  20. Yea i saw the river yesterday and it was still muddy.
