Joe Kubassek reports: Lake Erie tributary levels are good, but many of the migratory rainbow trout spawned early and most of the fish have dropped-back to the lower-sections of tributaries on their way to back to Lake Erie.  Most of the fish caught this weekend were post-spawned fish that have already reverted back to their silver, Great Lakes color and within a week or two most of these fish will be suspended and feeding heavily in the open lake.  Anglers caught most of their fish either bottom-bouncing or fishing a float & spawn sack.  If you are planning on fishing any of the Lake Erie tributaries this week, make sure to use the lightest/clearest line and also use stealth when approaching likely fish-holding runs and pools so that you don’t spook fish.
