Man I really want to catch myself a lake run brown trout....

Any suggestions? Is it a target fish or just a "chance" encounter when fishing for steelies? Like shooting a banded bird?



It's really a chance thing, IMO, usually you just toss your fly into a pod, or a pool where fish may be holding, and sometimes a brown, or if you're lucky, a salmon, instead of a steelhead grab your fly. Not really sure how to target one over the other, they both take the same flies. That is, unless the water is really low and clear, and you're able to sight fish, and you have good enough eyes to tell between the two. The one I caught I wasn't targetting, I targetted a different fish that refused my streamer, and I let it keep swinging, and sure enough, this one came up and took it. But, I didn't know it was a brown until I was fighting it.

There seem to have been more reports of browns in the mile streams the last few years. I know I've seen more there personally, but there's still a good handful in Walnut and Elk.

No way to specifically target them unless you see them first.

That is where I saw most of them last year, in the East. I had a few hooked up over there, but caught my first one ever last year in Elk. It was a beauty!

Looks like a wet few days for Erie. Showers and storms for a while, then the big wallop at the end (Mondayish). Front's gonna make it here.

Then it wants to dry out again. Maybe for a while. But Karen could put an end to that idea before it even gets established, depending on how far west her remnants go. When she comes up, farther east = wetter.

The most recent NOAA report is indicating from 1.5" - 2.75" of rain. This should blow the creeks out through Tuesday but I'd bet by Wednesday there will be nice green water on some of the creeks. I've booked three nights in a Girard motel and am probably leaving Tuesday morning so I can do some scouting and be on the water at first light Wednesday.

Nice fish, by the color of the fish it appears it might be a resident rainbow rather than a true steelhead.

No resident rainbows in Elk Creek. Very little water in the summer and what's there is very warm.

That fish looks like a 1 year old steelhead... what's that called again Jack???


webcam looks good right now. Lots of people fishing. Unless we get more rain though, it'll be back to low levels by Wednesday.
