The erie tribs are high as of now and will prob stay that way for the weekend because of all the snow and warm temps on the way, the LO tribs are high also, so we may be screwed for the weekend, so what the gauges and chose wisely.
The LO tribs have lots of fish and are fishing very well, some of the Erie Tribs are doing well also, try the bigger ones and with deer season open please wear lots of orange. The kids are off from scholl so there will be extra pressure on all of the streams so choose carefully.
Jeff and a buddy went out today and gave me this report, the Erie tribs
have very good numbers of fish in them and he water was slightly off
colored due to the run off from the melting snow. They got out in the
afternoon to avoid the morning crowds and cold temps. Jeff told me there
was a lot of foot traffic on the streams, they walked away and had
sections to themselves. They caught the fish on chart and
peach sucker spawn and even got a bonus lake run brown to boot. Once again thanks for the report
There is no need to update anything as the rains have come and the creeks are coming up again. https://waterwatch.usgs.gov/?m=real&r=ny&w=map
check the creeks you want to fish and pray they dont get all of the rain they are forecasting for us.
