OCBS 2018-2019 STEELHEAD TOURNAMENT
18 NOVEMBER 2018 LEG RESULTS
The 2nd Leg of the OCBS “Members Only” Steelhead Tournament was held on Sunday 19 November 2018. An overcast day with intermittent rain showers/drizzle. Air temperatures were in the mid-thirties. Precipitation earlier in the week resulted in high flow rates and turbidity in the major streams. The Chagrin and Ashtabula Rivers had favorable conditions and held good numbers of fish which were spread out in the systems. Anglers reported catching multiple fish with the majority measuring under 24 inches.
A total of 15 fish 24 inches or greater were check in for the Tournament.
Congratulations to Adam Hillman who placed first with two fish measuring 26.50 and 25.00 inches respectively.

4 NOVEMBER 2018 LEG RESULTS
The 1st Leg of the OCBS Members Only Steelhead Tournament was held on Sunday 4 November 2018. A partly cloudy day with temperatures in the mid-fifties. Heavy rains earlier in the week had the major tributaries blown out. However, the smaller streams and high gradient tributaries were fishable with adequate flow and visibility. Record rain fall earlier in the week triggered good numbers of fresh fish into the river systems.
Anglers enjoyed steady action throughout the day, but the majority of fish were under 24 inches in length. A total of 10 fish over 24 inches long were check in for the tournament.
Congratulations to Ray Lancaster who placed first with two fish measuring 26.5 and 24.25 inches respectively.
