Anyone steelhead fishing?

Recommended Posts

Haven't seen any steelhead threads or pics lately, anyone hitting the Great Lakes tribs for steelhead?

I ususally have fished several times by this late in the fall but my work schedule hasn't allowed me to.

Tomorrow will be my first outing for the fall, I will be fishing Lake Erie tribs!

I can't wait.........pics to follow after the day!

Whelp, sorry no pics, left the camera sitting on the table this morning.......

Fish were smokin this morning. Between my buddy and I, we went through 4 dozen emerald shiners and assorted other baits all before 10:30 AM. Had countless hook-ups and landed over 20. We quit around 10:30, ran out of shiners and crowded conditions were making it like combat conditions. Every time we hooked up other anglers would bombard us. Hung it up at that point but had a great morning despite my breathable waders springing leaks, my toes were a little cold :).

Will be out again in next couple weeks and won't forget the camera :o

Ive been fishing Niagara River (lower, queenston area), and Port Dalhouise. Ive gone out with my Brother and Dad all times, and we havent caught a thing, we've had some nice hits but never hooked into one. We mainly drift roe sacs, I usualy switch to spoons after getting bored of using roe sacs. We have seen people catch some steelies here and there but nothing impressive. I believe it was 2-3 weeks ago we went  down to the Niagara River and it was just loaded with boats, but we only saw about 2-3 guys actualy hook into one. The Niagara river being famously known for its steelhead fishing doesnt seem to be producing this year.

Haven't had too many reports of any huge steelhead out of the Catt Creek yet.

Lots of fisherman crowding the banks though.

Fishing in PA waters. Crowds were pretty bad once the sun came up, just walked a little farther away and found a little serenity, for a little while anyway. Season is just really getting good here, the tribs have been pretty low for much of the fall, now after a couple good rains the fish have spread out some. We didn't catch any really big ones, largest was around 8 lbs, most were 5-7 lbs. Did see a few hogs but they had lock jaw. I usually hit the Catt once a fall, haven't ventured there yet.

Today was another great steelhead day!

The day before Thanksgiving the Erie tribs were blown out from 2 inches of rain. By today they were back down and a really nice color and what a day :) Me and 2 friends landed over 30 with many more hooked up that got away. Bait of the day were Emerald shiners fished below a Drennan float, 6 lb test floro, 8-10 foot noodle rods.

My last fish of the day was big fish for the day. It was a female that had yet to spawn, went  around 10 lbs.
