Spey Daze Part 1

Spey Daze - Steelhead were introduced to the Great Lakes in 1872 and it didn't take long before they were thriving. However the subsequent damming of their three main spawning rivers put a big question mark over their long term viability. A stocking programme was introduced, that now adds millions of Steelhead to the water system every year and although there are pockets of the original (much prized) wild fish to be found, it is the stockies that provide today's angler with a reasonable chance of catching a fish. The film follows a number of devoted Steelhead anglers, fishing on the rivers and tributaries of the Great Lakes along which the Steelhead migrate more than once a year. The steep river canyons along the south side of Lake Eerie have become known as "Steelhead Alley" and provide a spectacular day's fishing. The Steelhead along the north shore of Lake Superior are much harder to find, it can take days of frustrating trial and error before a group of them can be located. The Pere Marquette River that runs into Lake Michigan is one of the few that can boast more wild Steelhead than stockies, so holds a special place in the heart of those that get to fish it. Spey Daze is split into two parts, this is Part 1 of 2.
