I was out in the morning fishing on Walnut Creek up by the chutes. There were some people catching steelhead but the bite was slow. The one guy next to me caught 4 while I was there and a few people in the pool caught some but it wasn’t like it was the other day with atleast someone having a “fish on” as some point in every direction you looked. I know the stop sign hole was lined with people and I saw them catching some fish. I did see some fish on stringers but not a lot. I left around 11:00am. The water was still high and you could not see the fish moving upstream at all due to the dark water color. I’m betting that today, Saturday, October 29 will be a good day as the creek will have came down and more fish should be moving through the chutes.

Steelhead Fishing Walnut Creek Erie Pa October 25, 2016

I made it up to walnut creek in erie pa on Tuesday October 25, 2016. I fished above the manchester hole above the chutes in the small fishing hole. There was a lot of action up there as fish were actually being caught. I did film some of the action with my new polarized sunglasses camera and I also had my new gopro hero 5 strapped to my should to try and film the fishing action as well. I put together a video of the film I got from my sunglasses camera and I am currently uploading it to youtube. I still need to put together the gopro video and then upload it to youtube.
Overall it was a good morning of fishing as I know just with the people that were around me that they probably had 4-5 hook ups each and landed a couple of them. I did land one and I was hoping I got it on tape but for some reason my camera decided to throw an error when I was saving it so I didn’t get it filmed. I did get it on tape with the sunglasses camera but it didn’t tape the entire thing as I only got it filmed when it was in the water. I did enjoy the fishing and being on the creeks even though I only caught and hooked up a few times. I know the majority of people were using egg sacks, single eggs, minnows, sucker spawns. I caught one on a green blood dot egg. I actually ran a tandem rig for the first time in a while.
I will post the video of both the sunglasses and gopro as soon as I edit it.
Let me know what view you like better. I know with the sunglasses that I need to do a better job of not moving my head as much so that it tapes the catches with less movement and shakyness.

I did go up to walnut creek this morning but I decided not to fish. The creek conditions were really murky and high due to the rain overnight. I did put together a few videos showing you what it looked like around 11:00am on 10-20-2016. Sorry about the multiple videos but my computer was not working correctly to put them all together.
