255 | Erie, Pennsylvania Christmas Steelhead


Rob drives to Lake Erie in Pennsylvania in search of steelhead. This is his first time fishing for Pennsylvania steelhead. Rob's plan was to enjoy solitude on the roads and streams while everyone else was busy with Christmas. The two famous tributaries are Elk Creek and Walnut Creek. You will hear some differences between streams during a low water stage.

Erie Steelhead | My First Trip To Erie, PAGeOrchards

These are the images to accompany the podcast. 48 hours in Erie, Pa. Christmas 2019.

Easy drive from Va->Md->Pa

I'd like to stop and spend some time walking around this old town



Signs for Erie start 

Sunset view from the Xterra 

One lane only 


Lots of gear in the kit

Day 1 Morning | Elk Creek


Breakfast 

Seeing the dead minnows I've heard about. White Death fly is to mimic these

Differences in geology from Ny to Pa streams. Day 1 Part 2 - Walnut Creek

I stepped on this, a big paw flew up. It was a dead beaver and freaked the crap out of me

Brown trout eggs allover Walnut Creek shores

Big fish in crystal clear parking lot water


Matching the hatch didn't work


I walked and walked and found no fish except in that stocked parking lot hole



And kept walking 

People napping on the bank on Xmas morning

I gave up on Walnut after walking this far and finding no fish



 I was convinced the Walnut Creek steelhead stories were made up after this long walk.


No fish at the mouth


Closed up fly shop

Orchards all over the place


Stopped in for provisions and info

A last shot at a fish on Elk Creek before driving home (in waders)


Joseph Griesbaum lands my fish 


Most colorful steelhead I've ever landed


My bacon fly worked again. This was swung along a shelf




 That smile. If I never catch another Great Lakes steelhead or another fish I will be ok.












Joe's 'Halo' Flies


Deez Nuts 


 I'm a big believer in the music that plays when I'm pulling into a lot or backing in the boat. Ladanday came on when I dropped into the lot. It gave me some good vibes and delivered a steelhead.
