West Erie County, DWCO Randy Leighton, WCO Brook Tolbert
Lake Erie conditions have been a bit on the rough side over the last week making fishing difficult. Perch fishing is still good to excellent when conditions permit and walleye fishing seems to be getting better....depending on who you talk to. There have been a few good walleye reports from the trenches, if you can take the time to find them. Bass fishing remains good in and around Presque Isle bay and along the lake shore in shallow water. Current Lake Erie water temperature off Erie is 73 degrees.
*Fish and Boat Commission Schedules Land Owner Meeting in Erie*:
Property owners along Walnut Creek, Elk Creek, Twenty Mile Creek, and Crooked Creek are invited to attend an informational meeting about the Commission's Public Fishing Access easement Program on August 27, 2009. This meeting will begin at 7:00 pm in Room 112 at the Tom Ridge Center located at 301 Peninsula Drive in Erie.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn about how public fishing access easements can benefit landowners and improve the watershed at the same time.
Landowners may be paid for granting a public fishing access easement through this Program. Information will be shared about how this program has been operating successfully in the Erie watershed for the past three years. Ample time will be available for questions. Representatives from the Lake Erie Region Conservancy will also be present to report on their efforts to improve fishing access and preserve open space in Erie County and to answer questions about future conservation easements.
If you plan to attend, please RSVP by August 21st to Jackie Kramer firstname.lastname@example.org or call 717-705-7845. If you are unable to attend, you can request a brochure from the PFBC that includes an introduction to public fishing access easements.
