Buckeyetrouter - Give the guys at Mad River Outfitters a call or check out their website. They have some trips to OH and MI and if they don't have the info, I'm sure they can hook you up.

My 17 year old nephew, who I took fishing for the first time when he was 6, took me Steelheading last April for the first time. On the 4th day with an hour of fishing time left, I hooked and landed a 30 incher in the Rocky. I'm not sure who was more excited. I was up again this December and over a 2-day pereiod on the Ashtabula, I hooked 11 and landed 3. I hooked one at the top of some rapids and when he felt the hook he just turned downstream. Before I could take a step he had me on the backing and unhooked at about 80 yards. WOW!

It is a real kick when you can spot a fish and then cast to them time and time again until they split, hit, or you finally give up. I'll be heading back up as soon as this deep freeze passes.
