Lake Erie Tributary Steelhead Action

Posted on April 13th, 2009

Joe Kubassek reports:  I fished one of the Lake Erie Tributaries on the Ontario side this weekend and the water was in good condition.  I fished trout egg spawn-sacks with a float-rig and caught 3-migratory rainbows.  Two of the fish were in the 7-10 lb. range and I also landed one female rainbow that was at least 15 lb..  She still had eggs running out of her and obvious wear-patches on her sides from actively spawning .  Only the top half of her tail was whole with the bottom part almost entirely worn-out from digging her nest.  Talk about a powerful fish. She was mighty happy when I released her.
