Chagrin River

Tip of the week 

Steelhead season has officially come to a close, but there is still steller fishing to be had. Smallie action has been heating up with plenty of fish willing to take streamers and crayfish patterns. With the warm days in the forecast, don't be afraid to get your top-water game going. Casting poppers and sliders into cover will become more and more effective as the summer progresses. When targeting carp, make sure to focuses mainly on feeding carp, and cast small crawfish patterns or other carpflies into their "feeding zone". Try to be as stealhy as possibe, river pigs are notoriously spooky, especially in low flows.

Seven-day forecast 

Warmer weather and some rain in the forecast for early next week will make the river rise, so sight fishing for carp may have to take a back seat. Hopefully, we won't have a blowout, but to be safe make sure you check flows before you go out next week.
