Welcome and us other GLs fly fishers look forward to your Ohio reports particularly on your steelhead rivers of which we hear great things of the steelhead runs.

I am in Chicago and could be there in 4-6 hours, but have never fished it yet. Never get past Michigan, Indiana, and Wisconsin steelhead rivers, and Lake Michigan surf.

Have a good hoiday

Welcome

I live just east of you in Franklin, PA. Andover area used to be a great area for grouse hunting. But, alas, grouse is secondary to the great flyfishing we have in this area. I have migrated to the saltwater flyfishing a couple of months a year, and my learning curve is still straight up. I fish the Erie tribs in PA and NY when conditions permit.

This is a great site and again welcome.

Ohio Fishing

If you like fly fishing for smallmouth bass, Ohio offers one great creek on the Ohio/PA/W.V. border...
Beaver Creek State Park, located off of State Route 7 between East Liverpool and Rogers Ohio...

I caught twenty smallies over 12 inches long one day last summer and three of them were 15+ inches...
The creek is a slate/shell bottom creek with many limestone boulders to boot.

There is also the Mad River in western Ohio around the town of Urbana and Dayton, Ohio's only "NATURAL" trout stream...
I caught my first WILD rainbow there, it's colors was unbelievable.

To the north we have major rivers like the Grand, Cuyahoga and Conneaute Creek (my favorite place to go).

Ohio offers some fantastic lake fishing too, most can be fished with a fly rod.
This is just the tip of the water-ways, granted Ohio has less trout waters than PA or W.V...
But having a 40+ inch muskie or pike at the end of your line kind of makes up for it... :hehe:
