January 1st 2013

A message from Dick. I have decided to retire from the guiding business.  I have enjoyed meeting and fishing with my past clients.  My body just isn't up to the rigors of spending every day on the stream anymore.  So I have decided to let the young bucks take over. I am going to miss fishing with so many of you I met thru guiding "Steelhead Alley".  I still love to fish and I hope to run into you on the stream. If you would like to go on a steelhead trip, give Don Mathews and the rest of the crew at Steelheadschool.com a call. I'm sure you will have a great trip with them.  Thank you for all the great memories..!!  Dick

The Ohio Steelheader Dick Keagy with a Steelhead caught on the fly

My name is Dick Keagy. I fish and guide the Lake Erie feeder streams for Steelhead trout. I am a life long resident of North East Ohio.  I have all of the equipment you will need. You may fly or spin fish or do both. First time steelheaders or fly fishers are welcome. Casting instruction is included if necessary. All flies and baits are included in the price.  I also bring a streamside lunch and beverages.


My rates are very competitive.  As low as $125 per angler in groups of three or more.

1 angler $280

2 anglers $320

3 anglers $375

* $50 deposit to hold date



I start guiding October 1st and continue thru until May 1st weather permitting.  I am a full time guide.  I am available to guide seven days a week.  Ohio stocks the Manistee strain of steelhead.  They are noted for their exceptional size and fight. They will average 24 inches in length. 




Who wants to fish in a crowd. Let alone pay to fish in a crowd. I specialize in finding out of the way places that are not crowded. Our streams get muddy very quickly.  I know many small feeder streams as a option if we get high water. We are the only guides confident enough to offer "you catch fish or you fish free" policy on our guide trips.


Our fish are excellent quarry for the fly fisher.  We use  6 and 7weight rods. The fish respond to flies or bait well.  I will bring both fly and spin gear if you would like.  During the spring months you may get to sight fish.  I have developed many unique effective patterns for taking steelhead in our streams.



Last year I decided to join the group of guides at SteelheadSchool.com .  It made sense to network with these guys.  I saw them on the stream everyday anyhow. Sometimes its a small world when your a steelhead guide. So far this team concept  is working out very well. You may now call our central booking number at 330-565-5457or myself directly to reserve your fishing date.
