Default Erie, Pa Steelhead Trip

Last week I spent the entire week in Erie fishing for steel and had a great time. Been doing this for about 13 years now and I do not think I have ever seen so many fish in the tribs. They tell me that Erie had a rough winter with the streams staying frozen longer and they had a near record snowfall - perhaps making for a larger spring run. Anyway - just though I'd post some pics for your enjoyment.

Great pics -- thanks for sharing -- and great fishing too -- I'm always surprised by the number of Canadian anglers know about and use Steelhead Alley compared to Americans -- just awesome fishing

Now that's what I like to see!!! Look at those fish hanging out! I wish I were there Steely. It's been months since I've seen anything like that but the times coming around real soon.

Thanks for posting your photographs they are wonderful. I used to fish there myself and loved it.
