It is WAY cooler than steelhead fishing, but doesn't mean I still don't miss steelhead fishing. I'll have my kids up there in no time riding a rod like a horse pulling in some steel though.

Fished yesterday, started the day out at 16 mile conditions were absolutely gorgeous, water perfectly tinted, yet still could see some fish moving about. Caught two here, had 4 or 5 hookups, hot ticket was pink sucker spawn and minnow streamers. After lunch, headed to the tomato patch on 20 mile, caught two here, had many hook ups, had one on that was easily one of the biggest steelhead of my life, just about had him in but couldn't get the net on him, he took off downstream and broke me off. After this, some rain and higher winds began, and the action seemed to slow down. Of course, after heading home to watch that PSU/ OSU debacle with my buddies, I probably should've flaked, and stayed up in Erie another day. May go up again next weekend, or the weekend after.

And with all the talk about it, and before anybody has a hissy, I cropped the background out of the photos in order to avoid any so called spot burning. Got one more that I'll have to work on, can't get it to load.

It would be terribly difficult to spot burn 16 or 20 Mile Creeks. Looks like you had a nice day. Keep up the good work!

I'd have to say that's stocked fingerling/smolt not necessarily wild.

That's a par BTW, not a smolt.

The fish commission, prob just never made it to the lake. Or is streambred which would be pretty cool.

The thought of it being stocked did cross my mind, but yeah I'm pretty sure they(the PFBC and other clubs) only stock in the spring. Plus as PatrickC said, it's a parr, too small to be a stocked smolt.

The fish commission stocks steelhead smolts in the Spring. That's a wild par.

Exactly why you should put the hens back.

I made a trip to Erie this weekend (Fri and Saturday). Here's my report.

Fri: Went to Elk in the vicinity of Girard. Was parked before first light and went in by flashlight. Water was fairly high, and brownish green. Maybe a foot of visibility. I didn't think it was gonna be that bad, but it was. I fished there till about 11:30 without having so much as a bite. I didn't see anyone else with a single hookup. I covered some water, and talked to several people along the way, and nobody had a single bite.

So, I called it a loss, went through a BK drive thru for lunch then drove to the east side. Tried 16 mile first. Just a zoo. Didn't even park, I have zero desire to fish like that. So I drove over to 12 mile, where there were only a half dozen vehicles or so. Low and gin clear, not many fish in the stream. There were like 8 guys up under the bridge in the plunge pool, so I didn't dare try to fit in that. The bottom pool was open, with fish, but it was quickly apparant why. Awfully skittish, no current, and as soon as a fly hit the water they b-lined directly away from it. There were like 4 guys on the wall a little ways up playing with a handful of visible fish, didn't push in there either.

But in the 50 yard stretch above the wall and below the bridge, there's some pocket water. Nobody was fishing it. Walked through, and at first saw zero fish. But on REAL close inspection I found a few in there. Amazing how a 2 foot football of a trout can dissappear in 2 ft of gin clear water on top of a slate bottom! Anyway, I'd find 1 fish, catch him, then get mobbed by people. lol. "Look guys, there's only 1 fish there, and I just caught him." Then I'd walk up 20 yards and find another, and get mobbed again. I ended up landing 3, lost 2, till I was out of water and fish. So I called it a day and went home.

Saturday: Met FarmerDave farther up on Elk. Again, started walking before daylight. Lots of guys. But lots of water too. Water condition was perfect green, couldn't ask for better. You couldn't see fish, so it was just fishing good looking water. In the morning, we didn't do very well, and neither did anybody else, leading everyone to question how many fish had made it up that far. But it looks like it was just cold, cause by by late morning there were fish being caught here and there, and I was no exception. We were covering water, fishing a pocket here and a tailout there. I landed 4 (counting a long line release as I was beaching one, but I had touched it so I'm calling it a catch), lost 2, and missed 2.

I wouldn't doubt the afternoon was very good. But FD had some wader issues, and I could stay in domestic good graces by leaving early and getting to the in-laws at a decent time anyway. So we quit at 12:30 or so, went to the Avonia tavern for food and drink, and then called it a day.
