Here are the official results after a long two days. First, we would like to thank all of our event sponsors and tagged trout sponsors for making this event possible. We couldn't do this without your support. Second, thank you to our own company members and those from the community that helped out with the fishing derby. Thank you again to Fly Fishers International - Lake Erie Chapter for your continued support. Thank you to all the participants that battled the weather elements. There were many steelhead caught over the two days. Mother Nature was nice to us for the most part and gave us great creek conditions given the rain we received during the week and weekend.
