Lake Shore Steelhead Fishing

If stalking up and down a shallow river in the brisk morning air with a set of waders and a 10 foot noodle rod is more your thing then you need to come and try our steelhead fishing guide services here on the Ashtabula River. These fish are big and they are powerful. They make long runs in the shallow pools dancing across the top of the water like a true game fish should. On a light line and light tackle, it's a fight you're not going to soon forget. Steelhead fish start running in mid September and they stay in the river through winter. Then, they start back out on the lake around the first week of May. They can be caught all winter as long as the Ashtabula River is ice free. It's world class steelhead fishing as good, if not better, than anywhere in the country.

So if you're new to steelhead fishing and need a fishing guide to get you started or you want to make it an annual trip, we are there to help. We can supply rods and tackle of you can even bring your favorite rig. Our bait & tackle shop carries noodle rod and reels, and has a large selection of steelhead bait & tackle. We are a licensed Ohio fishing guide and we look forward to putting you on fish. We do not supply or carry any type of fishing waders in our bait & tackle shop. You must purchase these prior to your arrival. We do, however, recommend getting any type of waders that are insulated. Should you have any questions, feel free to give us a call!
