Fall Run: Eastern Steelhead

There is an inherent symmetry in the fall run of steelhead within the Great Lakes system. There is cool rain, and the fish move from the lakes into the tributaries.

Rusty Flybox: Summer

Earlier this week, I wrote about the real opportunities that are available for fly fishing for trout – even in the heat of the summer.
