I will try to make it up for saturday. That is a hard time for me to get away. My son turns 3 that week and I will have a 2 month old. The leash gets shorter every year.

Just curious for anyone that has attended these in the past. Does the group try to find less pressured water (maybe less fish to target but more elbow room?).

I've seen some pictures of Erie that show people elbow to elbow and I don't think I'd enjoy that...

Just curious how the group approaches the fishing spots...

thanks!

Last years event was the first PAFF jam I attended. The group met up in the morning at the pavilion at Folly's End Campground. Last year there were about 8 to 10 guys. The group separated into smaller groups with more experienced guys taking new guys along. The waters I fished last year weren't anywhere close to really crowded. It's an informal gathering and the groups decided where they were going to fish individually.
Don't let those pics scare you away

Most of the "really crowded" pictures you see are at the mouths of the big creeks; Walnut and Elk. There's big parking lots there and it's easy access. Most of the fishing done for this event is usually, meet at a designated place, hop in the car and head out to another spot to fish. I enjoy the water around Folly's campground so that's always an option, but typically steelhead in Erie is a reaction game depending on water levels. You fish where the best levels are and that can involve moving to a different stream throughout the day as well. Nice thing about this event is there's plenty of experienced guys who know many spots on the stream so if it's not fishing well or crowded there's always another spot.

Thanks for the info on the fishing spots. Barring the unexpected, I plan on making it up. Going to pick up some materials this weekend and start tying up a steelhead fly box....

Room is booked for this and been tying some flies. Hoping to get up in October maybe for some 'pre-game' as well just to learn the way around...

I would like to make this event.... I have yet to make a JAM.
I will also offer my time if you need any help in calling people and setting up and tearing down.

Dan, you can always find uncrowded water. Last year, Gulfgreyhound, his buddy Moose, and myself fished an area with easy access (do to Gulf's bad knee) for 3 or 4 hours and had the whole place to ourselves until we were getting ready to leave. Of course we didn't catch any and it wasn't sight fishing...

I did hook one though.
