Well, we can all count our blessing that we live in the great state of Ohio and not over seas in Japan. We get upset when the rivers are high and not fishable, while the people of Japan watched as their houses and life were washed away. Here at OSD we wish the best for the people of Japan.
Now as for the steelhead side of things, lets just say things are looking good? How about a newly buffed out chrome fender on a chopper. Ryan, our good friend Danimal, and I took to the river on Monday, with the weather in order and the rivers on the drop. Danimal went steelheading for the first time last year with no avail. Monday was different, although fish were not jumping onto the end of our flie lines, we were able to land a few and turn Danimal into a steelhead junkie. We video taped pretty much all of Dan's fight with his 1st fish all the way to the bank. Upon switching from video to my still, Dan performed the old steelhead fumble-rooskie and released his fish back into the water = no fish picture : ( .

TRY A ROLL CAST THE FISH ARE OUT FURTHER
Prior to hitting the water Tuesday morning, Ryan and I stopped by the Ranger station for the Cleveland Metroparks Rocky River Reservation. We talked with Lieutenant Sean T. Flanagan about making sure our raft passed inspection, and that we would not get hassled floating the Rocky River. Mr. Flanigan was a class act and takes great pride in taking care of the Metroparks. We checked out and off we went.
The river is coming into shape and things should be rocking and rolling here soon. Ryan and I were crunched for time but, managed....well, take a look.
