Welcome to the site Reefishd. Not too familiar with the Catt but others should be willing to help out. Lots of knowledge on here, keep asking questions.

fishingood,
Just an observation,,,,,fish numbers cruising near the mouths are low when compared to the last few years. Timing seem to be behind by about 10 days compared to the last year.
A lot of jacks close to shore this year.


I have heard the opposite basically, but not from any sources I can trust. Who knows.

I have never camped their but I can give you some advice. I do not know if you have ever fished the Catt? I would be careful trekking around as more than half of the creek is on Indian reservation. You can fish on the Reservation but you have to buy there license and park on their property. Let me also add that they don't really want you there and if you ask around you will hear some real horror stories.

The other thing about the Catt is she always blows out. Im not sure what it is but she blows out if it sprinkles. IMHO the NY part of lake erie has some awesome fishing all close to each other why limit yourself to one creek? NY creeks generally have less people WAY bigger fish and there all close to each other. Try them all you wont be disappointed.

•All foul-hooked fish must be immediately released without unnecessary injury.
•Use or possession of gaff hooks is prohibited except when ice fishing.
•Any action to frighten fish and move them from concealment, including herding, driving, kicking or stoning is prohibited.

I saw a guy on the Muskegon with 3 of them on his stringer last year. I was definitely wondering what the heck he was going to do with them. I'm guessing they are ok if you catch them out in the lake, but as with steelhead in the river....blech.

Nope. Don't know anyone who's ever done that before

Has anyone had much success fishing the lake, just casting on the beach?

And does that work just fishing at the mouths of tribs?

If you just picked a remote spot along the shore and fished, would you have much chance of catching a steelie? Or anything?

troutbert, the mouths of the streams in the lake at Erie are hotspots early in the season and decent places to fish throughout the runs. Moving up and down the beach could result in an occasional hookup, but I think most of the fish "bask" in the water entering the lakes, concentrating them, therefore, at the mouths.

I do not like fishing in the lake as much as in the streams because of the surf. When the winds are from the south, or better, southeast, and make the lake calm like glass, it can be very fun, even though very crowded, too.

from what i have heard the fish are super spooked and super pounded this early one might have more luck fishing shorelines near the mouths especially with spoons but with flies it's in my opinion best to wait until theres water in the creeks

bjkaledas,
I'm not implying that there is poor fishing on the lake shore.
My observation is that what we are seeing now usually occurs near Labor Day.

Troutbert,
You need to fish near the mouth.
I fish the lakeshore quite a bit beginning around Labor Day.
I Usually keep to the east side streams in Pa and in NY.
Waves one foot or less is my preference(rollers).
If the waves are pushing toward the typical west to east direction, you may be able to find fish 100-200 yards down the beach in knee deep or less water. Keeping a low profile and staying out of the water, I'll follow the schools of fish and cast flies out in front of them.
As the season progresses, it gets tougher to find uncrowded areas. WHat happens is that people start to wade out or worse case, stand in the stream outflow. I'm not a fan of standing in the water ball deep and blind casting to infinity. I leave that to the spoon chuckers. (not to say you can't catch fish like that on the fly).
