Huron River is tributary of Lake Erie that receives a spring run of stray Little Manistee steelhead. The 14-mile long main branch of the Huron River begins at the confluence of the East Branch Huron and West Branch Huron rivers just west of Milan, Ohio.
Steelhead fishing in the Ohio's Huron River is best in the Spring. The Huron River fishes best when the river is flowing between 150-250 cfs. The Huron River responds quickly to rain events and typically takes 2 to 3 days to clear and return to normal flow levels following a rain event.
