Kevin Reiter of Pittsburgh came in with a nice looking male Brown Trout. It weighed 5 pounds 14 ounces, was 23 ľ inches long and had a girth of 14 inches. He caught it on the South side of the Marina in Walnut Creek, north of the Stop sign hole. It was caught on a single egg.
Eight year old Paul E. Martin of West Mifflin brought in his first Steelhead. It was a female and she weighed 5 pounds 1 ounce. She was 23 inches long and had a girth of 13 ľ inches. He caught her in the Chutes in Walnut Creek on a single egg.
|Tony, Matt and Tia Craig from Ambridge, PA caught these three Steelhead. They all weighed around 5 pounds. They were between 24 and 26 inches. They were caught on maggot, minnow and rooster tail, north of the Stop sign hole in Walnut Creek.|
There have been a few people catching Steelhead but not bringing them in so I donít have many pictures. There was a little run that came in with the nasty weather we had. We still have no rain and the creeks are low and clear. The waves were high for the past couple days and that seemed to have brought a few in. The water temperature is still 69 degrees also.
I am sticking to my thoughts of between the middle of October through the middle of November being the best time for Steelhead. Before then, they are sparse and after that they seem to slack off a little.
The only word on Perch are they are out in 60-65 ft of water west of Trout Run around Godfrey. They are also getting them straight out of Walnut in 58-60 Ft of water. They have slowed down some.
The Walleye have been slow in being caught also. The only place boaters seem to be able to pick any up are in 60-70 ft of water west of Elk Creek. I haven't heard of any one getting many this week.
