I fished elk yesterday. I started at the boro park and fished the area till about 12:20. Unfortunately, i slipped on that damn shale stream bed and took on a little bit of water about 3-4 mins into the fishing trip. I spent the rest of the day with freezing feet. Had one hookup at the first location and saw a guy catch an 18" jack. I decided to relocate cause of the crowds and lack of action and flipped a coin to go higher or lower. Lower won. I got to the mouth of elk around 12:45. It was crowded, but when i got to the cascade pool a group was leaving cause a son had taken on some water and was complaining about being cold. I happily took their spot and fished next to a chain smoking russian for 3 hours. I foul hooked one and then finally landed my one and only fish of the day. It was a beautiful dime bright buck in the 8-9lb range.

I dont know what it was. There were moments in the day where i had the feeling "this is it, its going to come together and im going to smash them". I never get to fish elk when its at a perfect height and clarity. I always have to fish when its low and clear. I think the brandy gauge held steady at 10cfs so most would consider that perfect. In addition to good flow, there were two moments where i had very popular spots all too myself. I had the lower 250' of the cascade pool to myself in the afternoon after the russian left. Still, i only managed one fish. It was a tough day to say the least.

Fished Conneaut(in OH) and Elk today with my brother. Both streams were in great shape. Hooked into a nice fish at Conneaut which eventually spit the hook. Other than that we didn't have any other hook-ups there.

Our plan B was Elk, and it was a great decision going there! We salvaged the day and ended up catching 8, though 6 of those eight were out of the same run. Just happened to stumble a nice pod of fish(who knows how many, couldn't see them) and had consistant action. Didn't really move around much, just kinda stuck with that one short stretch so I'm not sure how the rest of the stream fished(we were on the upper part). Nice day on the water.....

Streamer guy-
What were you using? I fished Elk on saturday for 8 hours plus and didn't even get a hit! I was so determined and so frustrated all at the same time!!

I'm pretty much with you Porkchop- I was on Elk between Platz road and Follys end- covered a ton of water in 5 hours, only one hook-up / landed. pretty much heard the same from most of the people I talked to that day too.

Well, my plans to get up to the Jam didn't work out unfortunately, so I took this past Friday off and headed up to make up for it. Fished 16 and 20 mile on Friday, went 4 for 5, a good number of fish around, but very finnicky, 2 on streamers, 1 on about a size 20 or 18 zebra nymph, the other on a prince nymph, both fished under a tandem rig with a pink egg on top. Saturday, went to the 79 section of Elk for the first time ever, had a few hook ups, got one on a streamer early on, after that they shut down especially for the fly guys. Planning to head up Thanksgiving weekend, need a few more rains/ snows to get some fish spread out and fresh fish moving in, from the reports I've heard it sounds most of the fish are concentrated in certain holes.

PorckChop and Mucka,

I hooked most of my fish on small white beadhead buggers and light pink sucker spawn(sz 12). Just dead drifted under an indicator. My brother hooked one on a bugger, but he caught his fish spinfishing with small marabou jigs.

The first fish of the day was above W Rd, the last fish was much farther down, and the rest came out of the same run downstream a ways from W Rd. The only other guys I saw hooking up were the two people fishing the far upper part of the run we were fishing. Just got lucky I guess..

Nice Fish streamer & fishin. Wish the site would let me upload my photographs- every time I have tried they tell me they are too large of a format?

The only one I got Saturday was on a light yellow sucker spawn size 12 as well under an indicator, and in EXTREMELY slow water I usually shy away from. didnt know if the quick drop in temp from snow earlier in the week might still have them sluggish so I decided to give one of those spots a go.

Mine came on eggs. Red with a yellow dot. I use a sink tip and sinking leader. When the sun came out it was on. No sun no fish. Did put a hook in anotherone and when it's belly hit the shale on the far side it went balistic and was gone.

Anyone on the streams today? The guage was at a 1000 plus and now at 150 some I think, so if no more rain falls I may head up tomorrow. But as I look at the weather it says snow and wintry mix. Is there talk of a messy commute near erie? if so ill just hold off til Wednesday.
