Stumbled across this blog, and it has an entire Lake Erie Steelhead fishing primer on it. I read the entire first part and skimmed through much of the rest, and I have to say that it is a very entertaining and informative read if your a novice Erie Chrome Catcher.
How entertaining? Check out this excerpt from the Third Installment.
"Steelhead will "run" on any body of moving water that eventually ends up in the lake (and you can tell them I said that). Elk, Walnut, all the "Mile Creeks"...if you lived on the lake shore and ran a straight pipe from your bathroom to the lake you would probably be taking a shower one day in October and a steelhead would flop up out of the drain at you. This means that any stream in Erie county could have steelhead in it. Really. It's that simple. "
If you want to learn how to catch some steel, or just waste some time with some good laughs, check it out. I can't say that I agree with everything he says, like taking your daily limits every day, but that's a matter of opinion.
