Nov 4 issue of NW PA Fishing
It was a long dry spell, but the rain dance worked and Erie tributaries are full of water, steelhead and anglers. According to Erie area tackle shops and some guides, this is the best steelhead run in many years. Smallmouth bass fishing on Erie, select inland lakes and Allegheny River has been exceptional. Hottest area crappie fishing is at Shenango, and cold-water walleye bite is picking up on inland waters. Still a lot of fish catching to do!
