Steelhead fishing on the Lake Erie Tributaries has been labeled by anglers and fishing press as "Steelhead Alley". Fishing Steelhead Alley can be fast and furious with many hook ups in a day. If you are a beginner you can expect to learn allot about landing fish if you are an experienced fly fisher you can have the opportunity to test your tackle.
The steelhead season on the Erie Tributaries starts in mid-September, through winter well into spring.
The tributaries range in size from large drainage's like Cattaraugus Creek in New York to small drainage's like 12 mile creek in Pennsylvania. The experienced steelhead fly fisher knows where to go, on what creek based on the stocks or runs of fish coming in, season and water flows.
Damon Newpher has 15 years experience guiding on Cattaraugus Creek in New York through the mile streams of Pennsylvania on West to Pennsylvania's largest tributary Elk Creek.
Damon has a team of other guides he works with to accommodate single anglers through large corporate groups.
We look forward to seeing you this fall, winter and spring on the Erie Tributaries for a Steelhead Adventure!
