Steelhead Season 2015-16 begins when the first steelhead enters a Lake Erie tributary, and a lucky angler gets that “fish on”! No need to spend time waiting and watching, but you can prepare for your fishing trip for Lake Erie steelhead.
Follow the Reports-tips-newstips-news tab. A series of planned blog posts early this fall will explore the Lake Erie steelhead stocking program – stocking numbers, dollar value of the steelhead on your stringer, percentage of steelhead smolts that live long enough to mature and return to the tributaries, and finally, how many steelhead will “run” in your tributary during the “2015-16 run”!
Plan your trip. Pick a date, your preferred tributary, check water and weather conditions.
Seasonal patterns do exist so keep reading to learn more.
