Euclid Creek is located 10 miles east of Cleveland and is a medium-sized, shale-bottom tributary to Lake Erie that receives a spring run of Little Manistee steelhead. The Euclid Creek watershed is small, covering an area of 24 square miles that is highly urbanized.
If you are planning a trip to the Euclid Creek but are not sure where to go, a good place to start is the Ohio DNR Euclid Creek Steelhead Trout Fishing Map which shows public access points.
The USGS Euclid Creek stream gauge in Cleveland, Ohio provides real-time stream flow data that is helpful in determining when to fish Euclid Creek. Euclid Creek tends to fish best when flows are below 50 cfs. Euclid Creek has an average run-off time of one to two days, meaning flows return to normal within a day or two after a rain event.
