River Report

WATER LEVEL:  Low

CLARITY: High

WATER TEMP:  38°F

FLOW:  Normal

THROW:  Eggs/nymph patterns, woolly buggers, streamers/minnow/baitfish patterns

NOTES:  (Updated 12/14 @ 10a) The Rocky River is low and clear today and the bright skies could make fishing quite difficult. Target deeper pools, preferably with some cover like downed trees or boulders. With the warmer air and warming water temperatures today, we could see an active bite near sunset.

Congratulations to Aaron Honaker, the first person entered into this season’s Bonus Brown Trout Derby! Aaron caught a beautiful brown trout on the Rocky River this week, which you can see on our Facebook page. Details and rules here.

Congratulations to Mike Zahar and David Bowser, the first two new members of the 18-19 class of the 30 | 10 Club. See their catches here.

FOUND: A fly rod and reel was found by one of our anglers on the Chagrin River recently. Another rod and reel was found on the Rocky River as well this week. Both anglers are looking to return these rods to their owners! If you lost a rod and think it may be yours, send us a private message on our Facebook page and I’ll connect you to the individual that found it.
