On Saturday, Oct 4, 2014 – I decided to head up to walnut creek in Erie, Pa to check out how the steelhead fishing was going to be for the day. I knew we had gotten quite a bit of rain the day before so the creeks should have been up enough to help bring in more steelhead. I was right. I only stayed for about 4 hours but while I was there, I enjoyed every bit of the day fishing for steelhead. I fished most of the time in the hole above the stop sign and also a little bit in the rapids about that hole. All I can say was people were catching steelhead the whole time I was there. I was fishing across from a guy that was killing it with a yellow blood dot (red dot in the middle of the yellow yarn) and a drop down pink sucker spawn running off of that. I know for the people that were fishing around me that pink was the color of the day. There was a guy next to me that was catching them on pink egg sacs. I was catching them on pink egg sacks and pink crystal meth sucker spawns. I only landed 2 fish but I had so many on the line that actually just broke the line…either I did a bad job tying them on or the line was just to light for the steelhead. Either way the steelhead would jump and take off and it was just nice to see. I saw tons of people with a set of 3 steelhead on their stringers. There were people fishing everywhere below the bridge, even in the rapids people were getting fish. I did see people fishing in the chutes area but I never made it up there to fish because as you know, if there are fish were you are fishing, don’t leave. You couldn’t actually see the fish in the water because of all the rain we got so there was no way to tell just how many were in the hole I was fishing but you knew when you got a hit and I loved seeing the people around me hook up and have that steelhead come flying out of the water. It was a good day and it will only get better. I am working on a video for you that I took with my new gopro camera. I actually attached it to the top of my waders so the view is alittle different but I will have to find a better place for it in the future. You get to see the creek and some video of steelhead being caught. This week they are calling for rain for the next several days so if we do get it, the steelhead will continue to just move up as it has also been cold here so perfect conditions for steelhead fishing. Get out and fish, It’s Steelhead Fishing Time!
