Lake Erie Fishing Report: May 1, 2002|
Central Basin Streams:
Streams are coming down from recent higher flows and
are generally moderate and stained. Streams like Mill, Arcola, and Paine
creeks are relatively clear, but rain may muddy conditions locally. Peak
runs are winding down, but some big fish continue to be caught. Fish can be
found throughout the main rivers and tributaries, but will be concentrated
in the lower portions of the creeks as they get ready to migrate back out to
the lake. Stream steelhead anglers use spawn bags, jigs & maggots, minnows,
or flies such as woolly buggers, weighted nymphs, egg patterns and streamers
that imitate shiners. There are many public access areas on Ohio streams.
If you are on private property, you must have landowner permission.
