The 4th Leg of the OCBS “Members Only” Steelhead Tournament was held on Sunday 15, March 2020. It was a chilly day with afternoon temperatures in the low forties. Rain events earlier in the week pushed good numbers of fresh fish into the river systems. Both the East and West side streams produced fish. The majority of fish came from the Chagrin and Rocky Rivers which were in decent shape. The other legacy streams were marginal and just starting to come into shape with exception of the Grand and Vermillion which had high flows and turbidity.

A total of 20 fish over 24 inches in length were check in for the tournament.
Congratulations to Adam Hillman who placed First with two fish measuring 29.50 and 28.50 inches respectively.
