Lake Erie steelhead fishing report and commentary: Prepare for uncomfortable fishing conditions as air temps drop. The next weather shift will alter your “catch-rates” for the remainder of the week. February weather prediction calls for sub-freezing temps 24/7 for first week of the month. If true, ice-lock of tributaries will result so fish now and track the weather. Follow the steelhead upstream where you may find small pods of steelhead hiding where no angler is looking. Keep your planning window short. Only go when you have water flow/color conditions that match your fishing style. Never fish alone.
