WEST ERIE COUNTY, DWCO Randy Leighton, WCO Brook Tolbert:
Conditions:
The action continues on Lake Erie for both Walleye and Perch. The word is simply "they're everywhere". Limits after limits are being brought in along with many smiles. Trolling with dipseys is still the ticket. Warm and humid conditions around the area have continued to bring up the Lake temperatures forcing the larger walleye to head for the deeper waters of the trenches. Anglers targeting the deeper waters of the lake are already picking up the occasional Steelhead or Lake Trout. It's hard to imagine that in only a month and a half or so we we should begin to see the steelhead staging at the mouths. Steelhead are being picked up in the deepest waters of the second trench at 78 to 80 feet. Current Lake Erie Water Temperatures as of this writing are 77 degrees off Toledo, 73 degrees off Cleveland, and 76 degrees off Erie

Tickets Available for the PA Steelhead Association's "Big Run Banquet" The Pennsylvania Steelhead Association will be holding their annual Big Run Banquet on Saturday September 30th starting at 2:00 PM at the Shades Beach picnic grounds off Route 5 in Northeast. Only 300 numbered tickets are sold for the event at a cost of 20.00 each. Tickets are now on sale for this event and what a deal it is. The ticket includes a scrumptious pig roast, hot dogs for the kids, all the sides and fixings, snacks, beer and soda. Each ticket number is entered into a drawing for prize money ranging from 20.00 to the grand prize of 1500.00. Each ticket has a 1 in 15 chance of winning. The picnic type event also include additional prizes, a Chinese auction, demonstration events and more!! Tickets may be purchased in person at Poor Richards East and West or at the Fish USA store on West 12th street in Erie. For more information you can contact Poor Richards by telephone at (814) 474-5623, or Glenn Mills by email at glenn@pasteelhead.org. Please use PSA in the subject line when contacting Glenn. The PA Steelhead Association works closely with the PFBC, Trout Unlimited and other area clubs to help promote good landowner relations and to promote public access. Currently they are working with the PFBC to develop an easment purchase program for the area tributaries to help in maintaining and expanding public access.
PA Steelhead Associations Starts the Year off with a Bang:
The first meeting of the year for the PA Steelhead Association will be held Wednesday August 9th at the American Legion Post on Route 5 just East of the Airport. This should be a great kickoff meeting for the club. John Simmons, and Scott Bollinger of the PFBC with a tentative commitment by Dr. Austen are scheduled to be in attendence to discuss progress on the easement program and other issues. Your support at this meeting will be appreciated and as always, the public is welcome. This should be a great meeting with a solid agenda and an opportunity for questions.

Boating Safety Tip of the Week:
A small written reminder on the dash to trim the engine up before pulling your boat from the water may be all thatís needed to save and expensive prop or skeg.
