Great Lakes tributary anglers are taking advantage of rainfall, snow-falls and intermittent mild temperatures proving some excellent late fall steelhead fishing.
Our good friend Joe Kubassek took a couple of hours to fish some of the Lake Erie, ON tributaries fishing salmon eggs under a float and confirms that conditions are good but he fish are scattered. If you don’t mind covering water and checking out many runs and pools to hook into some fresh-run fall steelhead, now is the time.
Best water conditions are stained water after snow melt-off or rain where visibility is 1-2′ feet below the surface. Start by drifting close to bottom in some of the deeper runs and pools and then slowly shallow-up the float to intercept any suspended steelhead that are moving form pool to pool
