Wildwood Outfitters Blog and Fishing Report
Access on the Lake Erie tributaries is always a key issue for anglers. As more and more property owners decide to post their land, the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission has worked to acquire additional access points for those fishing for steelhead, trout, and bass. One of the biggest acquisitions occurred in late January as over a mile of Elk Creek will now become available to the public! The sale of the land was several years in the making, and the PFBC along with a few other groups deserves an enormous amount of credit for seeing this through to the end.
This particular stretch was open for fishing in the early 2000's before the owners decided to post it thanks to angler litter and disregard for marked parking areas. While the Lake Erie tributaries are constantly changing with each year, this is sure to become a favorite piece of water now that it is open again. Even if it provides a few holes and runs that are worth fishing, that helps spread anglers out and improve the experience for everyone!
