All rods, reels, flies and associated terminal tackle are provided by your guide. Snacks and water are also included. Lunch is served on full-day trips - unless you can't bring yourself to stop fishing!
All anglers are responsible for furnishing their own waders, boots, eye protection and a valid Ohio fishing license. Clients are welcome to use their own fly gear if they prefer. Weather on Steelhead Alley is notoriously unpredictable, for which reason it is recommended to bring rain gear and layered clothing to cope with changing conditions.
Your guide will be in touch with you repeatedly prior to your trip to advise you on meeting time and location, as well as the conditions to expect. Flexibility is required on Steelhead Alley in order to take advantage of optimal water conditions. A certain amount of fluidity in plans is to be expected until the evening prior to your trip.
Full day (8 hours) 1 or 2 anglers: $375
Half day (4 hours) 1 or 2 anglers: $275
Third angler: additional $100
Fish-Along Special: $175
A deposit of $75 is required to secure your trip.
Alley Grabs Guide Service is excited to offer a style of trip unique to Steelhead Alley - the fish-along. For a half-day, join your guide to fish Steelhead Alley together. This option is ideal for more experienced fly anglers looking to shorten their learning curve on Northeast Ohio tributaries and learn new steelhead water. You'll fish with the same proven flies on the same productive water - at a fraction of the price.
Because we share the water on a fish-along, there tends to be a bit less hands-on instruction than you'd find on a typical guided steelhead trip. For that reason, I do limit these trips to a single angler, and ask that clients have prior experience with fly-casting, knot-tying, and wading.
Alley Grabs Guide Service strives for a simple and fair booking process for all involved. In the event a customer must cancel a trip prior to 24 hours ahead of its scheduled start, or adverse conditions force your guide to cancel a trip, the trip will be rescheduled.
Cancellations made by clients less than 24 hours from the scheduled trip start time, or failure to show, will forfeit the deposit.
