Last night we took the boat out to see if we could catch some steelhead in trolling in front of trout run. It was a beautiful night out and the waves were calm. The only thing that was missing was catching some steelhead. We did mark a bunch of fish in front of trout run but we couldn’t get anything to bite. I could see all the people fishing in the lake and I didn’t see anything caught. I decided to film the wall at walnut of the construction going on from the boat view so you can see how everything is looking.
For those of you that are not from around Erie Pa. The wall at walnut creek in Erie pa is under construction. I put together a video to show you what it looks like there. I also filmed the creek conditions for September 27, 2016.
Can’t wait for steelhead fly fishing season to start.

I was able to get out and fish last weekend at walnut creek. Jake and Tony got to experience fly fishing in the creek. We did have several hookups but none landed on Saturday. Sunday, we got up really early and were on the creek by 6:30am fishing the pool above the chutes but we soon found out that the creek was even lower than the day before and had definitely become clearer overnight. This made it difficult to fish but we gave it a shot. We had a few early hookups but were still not able to land them. We will continue to try and get them their first steelhead hopefully sometime in the future. If you are looking to get out, the water in walnut creek is extremely low. They are calling for rain today and Thursday, Friday, and a chance of snow on Saturday so I am hoping the creek conditions improve to bring in more steelhead and raise the water levels.
Just wanted to let you guys know that I was out last Friday fishing with my niece at walnut creek. We were able to get about 5 or 6 steelhead to hit but we couldn’t land any of them. I was trying to get her to land her first steelhead but we will keep trying. I then went to walnut creek on Saturday and I was able to land 2 steelhead with several others getting away. I will work on seeing if i can get some of the video posted. This weekend I will be trying to fish again as right now they are calling for some rain on Friday. Hopefully we will get more rain to keep the fishing moving in and up. Tight lines everyone!
