I am going to try to make it to this one. I have never been steelhead fishing and I have to get together a rod and reel outfit. Not sure exactly sure when I will get there or how long I will be there. I will probably camp out.

Csoult, anything in the 6-9 weight range will be serviceable for steelhead, preferably in the 9-10 foot length range. If you don't want to commit to a new outfit, I'd be happy to hook you up with an outfit I'm not using while you are at the jam.

Alby, that is extremely kind but I think I am going to get a fairly inexpensive outfit just because if I somehow broke yours I would feel horrible. Also, if I use yours then you might expect me to take it easy on you in fantasy football.

I just was checking the WCO report for Erie,

"...This past weekend brought a number of fronts through the area with ominous skies and rough lake conditions. Boaters were few and far between. On the plus side, night time temperatures have been dropping which should help the steelhead migration along. A few steelhead have been caught at daybreak along the wall at the Walnut Creek Access Area but the definitive word is few. A small pod of fish has been observed off and on in the Walnut Creek Channel and there are actually a few fish that have made it upstream to the project waters. Be advised, this is not the starting gun of the season, but it is an indication that conditions are starting to change and a few fish are starting the day break exploratory runs. The tribs are exceptionally low and clear..."

Im working on it Bruno. Right now Im off that Mon and Tue. I usually carry a single hander, a switch, and a short 2 hander and let the water tell me what to do.

You know, you don't live far from me, if you ever want to try a spey rod, let me know. Im definitely no expert. Only been swinging a year. Below the Highland Park dam is a decent spot to practice.

Just sayin'

Just throwing this out there....

Jay348 and I are both coming from eastern pa. We are going to try to drive up together, but both have tiny tiny cars - will be a tight squeeze for a 6 hour haul.

Willing to share gas, driving, and expenses if anyone is heading out with a larger vehicle from the eastern pa area that can fit a couple more. 3 people would mean 2 hours driving each - easy trip :)

Either way - i expect to be there.

As for lodging, is it either http://www.thegreenroofinn.com/ or the sunset? Are they close to each other?

Thanks.
