Lake Erie and tributaries
(Erie County): This week’s Wednesday and Thursday rains increased flow and color on the big creeks. Outstanding steelhead fishing was reported on lower Walnut, where fish stacked at impediments above the Access Area went for egg patterns and Woolly Buggers. Elk Creek anglers reported hookups from McKean to the mouth. East of the peninsula, good flow, a nice stain and some notable catches were reported at Fourmile, Sixteenmile and Twentymile creeks. Single eggs and live minnows worked for spin anglers; sucker spawn and eggs were the hot fly patterns. Early in the week, several browns in the 10-pound range were caught. Rain fell Wednesday and Thursday and was expected today, with air temperature rising to 60 degrees by Monday.
