I recently scouted eight streams in preparation for my upcoming guide trips, which had to be rescheduled due to very late spring runs of steelhead. We are expecting huge pods of fish any day, but they are three weeks late. This has never happened before and is a result of our coldest winter in recorded history. Nature can be generous, but unpredictable. It does keeps you on your toes and humble. Here are some images that seem as though they from the Artic circle instead of at the mouths of Lake Erie tributaries.
