nirvana - a state of perfect happiness; an ideal or idyllic place.

(in Buddhism) a transcendent state in which there is neither suffering, desire, nor sense of self, and the subject is released from the effects of karma and the cycle of death and rebirth. It represents the final goal of Buddhism.

Replace Buddhism with fishing in that sentence and you have a great definition for Lake Erie steelhead fishing.


Mid to late November is the best section of the steelhead calendar for planning a successful trip.  You can look at this 10-day weather forecast and see good flow, favorable air temperature, necessary precipitation, and decent cloud cover as well.  Even the weekend days look promising for those few anglers who actually work for a living.  


Now depending on your preferred presentation bait/lure – fly or spin, feed them or fool them, you need to pick the day that suits you.  Use the gauges to predict water flow and keep in touch with fellow anglers who are fishing while you are planning.  The biggest trip planning problem you will face is the holiday and family responsibilities that may take priority.
