Just wanted to let everyone know that the fish are starting to gather at the mouth of the creeks. I’ve seen reports that people are getting fish in the early mornings because we have had some cold nights and some rain here. It won’t be long before the steelhead are fully in the creeks and the season will be on. I can’t wait! Weather is calling for a chance of rain here Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Keep checking back for reports, pictures and videos.
Hey Everyone…Jack York posted a new video today….I have it below…check it out.
I made the 1st trip of the year up to fish for steelhead at Walnut Creek, Erie Pa…It was a nice morning to be out steelhead fishing. I arrived around 7:30am and fished the hole above the stop sign. There were fish in there as you could see them moving up and then back down all morning. I did manage to catch 1 steelhead on a blue fly but that is all I was able to catch. It was a nice size steelhead but it did come off as I was pulling it onto the rocks for release. I took a few videos…when I get them on my computer, I will add them to the site. There were a couple of guys fishing the hole with me and they were getting steelhead pretty steady. One of the guys from my previous videos was there fishing and he caught quite a few steelhead…probably around 8-10 or so. I only stayed for an hour and a half since it seemed like it slowed down as soon as the sun came up. There are fish in the holes and they are moving up and down but the creek is low. Definitely some more rain to bring the creeks up.
