There are still a few weeks left in the run of spring steelhead on the Vermilion. Steve Pollick writes about local fly fishing guide Steve Cutcher and his favorite tactics. “This time of year, Cutcher is seeking ‘dropbacks’ – fish that are done spawning and slowly are sliding back down to the lake, or fresh-runs, still silver-sided and just in from the lake. Either way the fish are aggressive in mood and ready to slash at streamer patterns, which mimic minnow-size meals.” In the Toledo Blade.
