That question was more geared toward Jay. From his answer, I'd be able to guess my driving distance.

Salmon = 5hrs
Erie = 7.

The salmon is superior, IMO. Less fish, but a variety, and way bigger. The water is significantly nicer too, IMO.

We go the first week of October and pay to fish down low to beat the crowds. The salmon run is a blast if you go down there. I usually go back a handful of times to chase steel throughout the fall.

I'd drive the distance - never done it before. Worth it to me to experience it.

David, you have all the answers. Thanks. Why don't you work on capping that oil pipe in the gulf?

I apologize if you took offense to trying to help you out.
You never specified Jay in your post (there are many people who read this board!)
It's not that difficult to use mapquest, and you could have got your answer quicker than waiting for Jay!

I'm a lazy member of society that needs others to do things for me. LMAO. You are right but I also got his opinion on which is better. Did the SR thing before but never went to Erie. Guys in Hancock, NY make a run to Buffalo. They claim it's uncrowded and tons of steelies.

Western NY is good. I have friends that fish it often. It's just too far away. I prefer the salmon because I know it, and it's got 4 major species (5 if you split domestics and steelies), with 6 possible.

OK. We're getting off topic. We're talking about a fall jam. We've already had some interest in Hickory Run SP and streams in that area... Delaware River / Catskill Region... Spring/Penns/Little J.

Any votes for Lehigh, Yough, Central PA limestoners?

Make it happen. You'll get 400 suggestions. Just make one final, and people will come.

I've only been up there in the fall twice. The first time was about 20 years ago - and I did pretty well.
The 2nd was early oct of 07. That's when I found the water very brown because they dumping water out of Cannonsville reservoir.
I saw nothing hatching or rising, and didn't stick around very long.

It sounds like you have a good bit of experience up there then, and think it would be very worthwhile? I'm talking hatches and rising fish now

I've certainly made it known on here how much I like that river - and it sure wouldn't take much coaxing to get me back up there this fall

DFG,
You've got to keep it in perspective. There are hatches but not like the stuff you'll see in the spring. It's olives, caddis, ISO's. Sparse to mild hatches but the fish do respond.

jdaddy went up there last year in the fall. Fish were taken on upper EB, Beaverkill, Esopus, WB and Big D. And.... water on WB was muddy. When the drain the lake for the fall, it's blowing muddy water for a few weeks.

Sight nymph -

I didn't realize how close to the big D the beaverkill is - took me only 30 minutes to drive there last month from Hancock. If the D isn't in good shape, that would be a pretty good plan B I guess? I've never fished it or the Willoemoc.
