Lake Erie Tribs Still Producing Fresh Steelhead

ATT_1430749891096_20150503_212951Guide Scott Feltrinelli of Ontario Fly Outfitters finds a pod of fresh run Steelhead on a Lake Erie tributary on Sunday 4/3/2015. While Smallmouth Bass are entering the creeks everywhere and the Steelhead are planning there exit, there are a few fresh chromers still around if you know where to look. This little gem was interested in taking an olive crystal flash bugger on the mended swing (mend first/ then swing). Five for five aren’t bad odds this time of year in gin clear water and bright sunlight. Fish are spooked easily in conditions such as these so fish with your A game and stealth tactics. Forget the weights and floats folks.

I have been published in numerous print media and also have been a keynote speaker for a number of professional forums. Working alone; I recently finished three conservation projects within our fisheries. The first is a "catch and release" zone on 4 Mile Creek and also on Mill Creek (Lake Ontario). The second is a "fly fishing only" zone on 18 Mile Creek (Lake Erie). These projects and more highlight my passion for fly fishing, conservation and sharing the sport of fly fishing with others in every way I can. Catch em' on the fly!
