The Erie County fishing hotline said they are stacking at the mouth of 18 mile creek.To stay informed the # is (716)855-3474.I doubt if I will get out again this season with a bad leg and the price of gas.The price being even more of a factor as I have pain anyways and love to catch fish.

I am sure there are steelies in but with the salmon run in full swing it like looking for a needle in a pile of needles. They can be caugt but most of the time ya end up with afowl hookedsalmon, and dont forget about the number of guys who fish this time of year. I would say the best time to catch fall steel head is November 15th on, figure out why. There should be a few fish in by then, not great numbers but ya may get luckey. I would use orange eggs, or salmon spawn.

Give a report if ya get outI havent been fishing in a few weeks.
