Right Around The Corner...

02-10-09 Elk Creek Covered in Ice from Rt. 5 to the lake.

Here in the next week depending on the weather we will surely all be able to scratch the itch and hit our favorite steelhead streams. Most are aware right now everything is high and unfishable in Ohio and PA. With a steady dose of rain in the forecast this will definitely help push ice out of the rivers. It was pretty amazing seeing the River "Glaciers" on Elk Creek! Here is a photo from yesterday by Tim Hess looking at Elk Creek below is house. The Ice jam was as far as the eyes can see!!! Tim said as of today the streams have opened up nicely but are flowing muddy for now, spring steelhead fishing is just around the corner.

Easy Guide fly pattern for spring steelhead- The "Ice Man Minnow" tied on Eumer plastic tube.

See our fly tying blog for step by step instructions for this pattern..

We spent the off season tying and talking at some wonderful events, and concentrated on filling our fly boxes for the up coming spring runs. Coming up we will be at Colton Bay Outfitters in Ann Arbor MI and at Orvis Yorktown in Ill. Pat and I will be doing a fly tying Demonstration and Lake Erie steelhead seminar. Contact info for these events can be found on the side bar of this blog.
