Lake Erie Steelhead Season 2014 is heating up. Anglers are making steelhead fishing memories as fall rains encourage more fish to enter and run the tributaries. Click "Fishing reports, tips,& news" item in the Main Menu for the lastest info and fishing reports.
All anglers face the same challenge. Picking a fishing date that matches time off with good fishing. Pods of fish can be found in all Lake Erie tributaries, but they are very "nomadic". Here today and gone tomorrow. The lower sections of streams will briefly hold fish that move upstream overnight or during a brief rain shower. You must fish where they are. No fish - move!
Proven best baits are single eggs, sacs, double "fly tandems", woolly buggers and spoons [on the pier and lake shore]. The major "jig bite" will come next month as water temperatures drop. For now, jig action comes with the "micro" version of popular jig patterns.
