November 22nd, 2006

West Erie County, DWCO Randy Leighton, WCO Brook Tolbert


Area trib conditions remain good to excellent in most all areas. Steady rains have allowed additional fish to move in from Lake Erie and kept fish on the move to the upper stretches of the tribs. Anglers are finding good opportunities throughout the Walnut Project Waters, the Manchester Hole as well as the Girard Boro Park Area, Folly's End, and the McKean Holes. Flow has been steady over the last week with fish holding in the tail waters of most any hole. The Walnut Marina Basin has been hot during the early morning hours with the heavy hits slacking off by mid day. Popular baits for the basin are egg sacks, shiners, fresh skein, and the Power baits. There have been an unusual number of calm days on Lake Erie over the last few week allowing shoreline anglers at Trout and Godfrey runs plenty of good fishing opportunities.

The Thanksgiving Holiday can be a surprisingly busy day on the Erie tribs and with mild weather predicted, this year should be no exeption. Current Lake temperatures off the Port of Erie are 46 degrees. Current West county trib conditions as of Tuesday afternoon were up and flowing well with good color.

Walnut Creek Marina Memorial Wall Update for November 2006:

9 more spaces on the wall have just been engraved!!! If you ordered one this summer- please stop and see yours! The wall is starting to fill up. If you want one to remember or memorialize a friend or a family member, or to use as a Christmas gift this year - pick up an order form at the Marina office and mail it in. The office is open thru November and the 1st two weekends of Dec.

Also still available are 4 of the large "cap stones" which are on the top of the wall. These stones are very visible and impressive - stop and see what some buyers have done! These will make VERY SPECIAL Christmas, anniversary or birthday gifts. Imagine your great great great grandchildren visiting the wall 50-100 years from now and seeing your name on that wall!

The prices of the pavers are available on the order forms and the prices of the capstones are available from me at the address etc below. The monies from the sale of these goes into the Endowment Fund held at the Erie Community Foundation. The accrued interest from this fund will ensure that the garden and wall continue into perpetuity for everyone to enjoy.

Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in any of the above. I will be glad to get back to you.

A Special Thanks to Our Fellow Officers
This season as in past years, additional PFBC officers from around the state have given valuable time and considerable effort in many cases to come to Erie to assist local officers and deputies. The tireless hours and effort put in to assist the so often overburdened local officers has not gone unnoticed.

These officers, although perhaps not always visible, have made a significant law enforcement presence during our crowed steelhead season. These combined weekly details have been a productive part of maintaining a high level of law enforcement that has become so important during the busy fall steelhead season.

Fishing Licenses for the Holidays
With the official start of the Holiday shopping season the weekend, yo may want to consider all that the PFBC has to offer to supplement you gift list. 2007 Fishing licenses will be available December 1 or shortly thereafter through local agents, and also can be purchased online with a credit card, or by completing an application, either in PDF (complete online, then print) or HTML (print, then complete). Lifetime fishing licenses make great holiday gifts for the seniors on your list. A new license for the young angler who has recently turned 16 would make a delightful stocking stuffer as well. A license purchased in December may used for the remainder of 2006 as well as throughout 2007.

The PFBC also has an extensive list of publications and gift items available for purchase online at our Outdoor Shop. Many of our publications, posters, and booklets are available at the Walnut Creek Access office as well.

Walnut Creek Access Office: The Walnut Creek Access office will be open until December 15th and then closing for the season. Portajohns and trash dumpsters will remain at the access area throughout the winter months for the cold weather crowd.

Hunting Season: With the opening of deer season on Monday, anglers are again reminded that a little orange in the out lying areas of the West County tribs may help distinguish you from that trophy deer. This is especially important in the upper stretches of Elk Creek.

From all the PFBC officers here on Pennsylvania's North Coast, have a great Thanksgiving Holiday and a safe and productive deer season!
