By Will Elliott >Lake Erie The first solid sign of fall fishing showed up this past week with a few nice steelhead trout hitting at 65-foot depths off Cattaraugus Creek. Rick Miller at Miller's Bait & Tackle heard of a couple smaller steelies stealing into mouth-of-the-creek waters. "If we get some more cool nights, the runoff from upstream at Gowanda and Springville should cool waters down here and have trout in the creek in a week or so," he said. He also noted a much better...

By Mike Jackson Daily Herald Outdoors Writer I presume many anglers are ready for spring fishing action. The experts tell us the magic water temperature for walleyes to do their spring spawning dance is between 42 and 48 degrees. There are exceptions to the rule, though, with a few rivers turning on a bit sooner. The larger female walleyes move into holes or deeper depressions in slower current areas and hold there while signaling their intentions to males that they are almost ready...

By Bob Frye High Point Lake is the kind of place you fish only if you really mean to. Located near Mt. Davis -- the highest point in Pennsylvania -- in the mountains of Somerset County, it's far off the beaten path. Still, it gets considerable fishing pressure from anglers all across southwestern Pennsylvania. If there's one problem with the 338-acre lake, though, it's been the sometimes carpet-like cover of vegetation within it. "The weeds are really bad there," said Scott Gates of...

By PAUL A. SMITH Calumet Harbor -- The Calumet pulls out of its dock just after sunrise, chugging west through a veil of steam that rises from the warm waters of Lake Winnebago. It's another day of work on the lake for the 53-foot trawler and its crew, another opportunity to gain understanding of Lake Winnebago, one of North America's most unique fisheries. The crew includes three Department of Natural Resources employees -- captain Bob Hoodie and fisheries technicians Bob Olynyk and...

Keystone Lake in Armstrong County gave up a 44-inch musky this week and a 35-inch musky last week, according to Pam Warr of Keystone Bait and Tackle in Shelocta. A few nice bass and walleyes have also shown up, too. An angler fishing Blue Spruce Lake in Indiana County this past week reeled in a 7-pound, 2-ounce largemouth bass. The fishing has generally been pretty good at Lake Arthur, too, said Ron Anderson of Appalachian Trails in Prospect. Anglers drifting nightcrawlers have brought in...

By Scott Richardson HUDSON - A couple of weeks ago, The Pantagraph featured a story on night fishing for muskies. It told how anglers could take big fish after dark when angling pressure was less and muskies were actively feeding and vulnerable. A few days later, guide Thad Hinshaw and friend Bob Park proved the theory. Hinshaw, who has caught loads of muskies around the clock, led Park to a 43-inch bruiser at Evergreen Lake. Time: 8:56 p.m. "This type of fishing is not for the casual...

OAK ISLAND, NORTHWEST ANGLE, Minn. _ In July the sun rises here early and stays in the sky late and nearly everyone thinks about fishing. Maybe not the postmaster on Oak Island, Don McClanathan, who opens his small office three days a week. But everyone else. The previous evening here, in a tall bucket beneath a table in a fish cleaning house, a few dozen walleye carcasses pooled themselves in odd shapes. Their fillets had been extracted by anglers who by then were eating dinner or who...

By Chris Niskanen, Pioneer Press, St. Paul, Minn. Jul. 27--Walleye artists, start your paintbrushes. The subject of Minnesota's newest wildlife stamp competition is also the state's fish, officially known as the walleye, but also affectionately known as Walter or Mr. Waldo. Yes, the yellow-flanked fish gets its own stamp this year, which will be sold on a voluntary basis to anyone who wants to contribute to the state's walleye-stocking program. If you choose to buy the walleye stamp,...

By Bob Frye, The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Jul. 27--Around the Fish & Boat Commission --It's what didn't show up in a survey of Conneaut Lake in Crawford County that's as interesting as what did. The Fish and Boat Commission has stocked more than 700,000 walleye fry into Conneaut -- at 930 acres, Pennsylvania's largest natural lake -- over the last decade. In 2007, 20,000 walleye fingerlings were added to the mix in an attempt to boost the population. Yet, when biologists...

The Yellow Perch (Perca flavescens), is a species of perch found in the United States and Canada. Yellow perch look similar to the European perch but are paler and more yellowish, with less red in the fins. They have 6-8 dark vertical bars on their sides. The yellow perch is in the same family as the walleye and sauger, but in a different family from the white perch. Yellow perch size can vary greatly between bodies of water, but adults are usually between 4-10 inches in length and weigh...
