Outdoors with Lauren: Fly Fishing for Steelhead

Outdoors with Lauren: Fly Fishing for Steelhead

This late spring has had a dramatic effect on fishing conditions. High water isn't great for fishing, but even if the odds are one in a million there's still a chance.  On this weeks Outdoors with Lauren I take those chances fly fishing for steelhead.

Mike Viviani takes me just a few miles from Lake Michigan fly fishing for the elusive steelhead in one of the many tributaries.
"As the river comes up the fish move in and we're hoping we can run into some rainbow trout today on the tribs."

Leaving the river with no pictures to brag about, I still feel satisfied just spending a day on the river outdoors.
"You can't ask for anything better. The days are warming and it's beautiful, the water that we fish here is just absolutely gorgeous. You hardly see any people and fantastic scenery. Wildlife and too bad no fish today."
