  1. Ohio Sea Grant to host Women's Steelhead Fishing Clinic

    Ladies, do you want to take up a new hobby this winter? Do you like the outdoors? Want to find out how you can hook into a trophy steelhead trout in northeast Ohio? Do you want to learn in a relaxed and un-intimidating environment?
    If you answered yes to one or more of the above questions, then this clinic is for you! Ohio Sea Grant will be hosting a women's-only steelhead fishing clinic to be held in Bay Village at the Lake Erie Nature and Science Center, 28728 Wolf Road.

    This is a progressive clinic and the date of our first meeting will be Tuesday, November 9 from 7 to 9 p.m. Subsequent meetings, each with a different topic, will be held on November 10, 16, and 17 from 7-9 p.m. On Saturday, November 20, there will be an on-river seminar from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., location to be announced. This event is co-sponsored by Ohio Sea Grant and the Lake Erie Nature and Science Center.

    Pre-registration and payment of $10.00 (to help support the nature and science center) is mandatory to guarantee a spot!

    This clinic will feature various local steelhead fishing experts, including Dave Kelch, Ohio Sea Grant, Wael Dardir and John Marics of Mentor. Topics to be covered in evening sessions include biology of the steelhead trout and stocking programs by the Ohio DNR, fish consumption advisories regarding steelhead trout, gearing up for river fishing, cost and selection of fishing equipment, locating fish in northeast Ohio waters, and tactics and techniques for catching steelhead trout in any water conditions.
