Steelhead School Presents
Alley Lodging Page
Our Steelhead Runs
last from October thru May. This is the off season for our
hotels along Lake Erie's southern shoreline. Interstate
I-90 runs the length of the lake. It is known as
"Steelhead Alley" Many hotels are located near its
are easy to find and reservations are usually not
necessary. If you are planning a trip it may be a
good idea to get a advance reservation at a hotel that allows you
to cancel up until the arrival date. This will
allow you to be flexible if stream conditions are more
favorable at another stream. This will give you
the option of relocating to another hotel closer to
where you will fish if need be. Of course your guide will meet you at your
hotel in the morning.
Reserve your room
by the season. We have developed the list below
based on past experiences where he fishing will be the
best for the particular time of year. Our picks
for hotels are listed with *** Your guide will be happy
to make lodging recommendations, please call.

Appalachian mountains. It tends to flood out in
the spring from snowmelt. Very seldom can you fish
there except in the fall.. The area around he Catt is
very rural and doesn't have many lodging options.
The areas spectacular fall foliage draws quite a few
tourists. I would suggest advance reservations.
