A good alternative to steelie fishing. Some of the females will have some eggs, which work on the steelies downstream. Keep in mind that the limit is two trout, even in that section of the river, since it falls under the steelhead (rainbow) limits in lake erie and its tribs. They seem to check for fish and licenses in that section of the river a bit better than downstream (steelhead section), for some reason.

Right Dingo. Not my favorite eating fish but a nice change from frozen perch. I keep a few now and then for the frying pan. Also very good smoked. They must have stocked heavily, I caught a few late afternoon yesterday at 130th st. Water conditions are perfect.

Default Trout Stocking Rocky Rivers

Hey Guys,

Hoping for a little help here. I have not fished for trout ever. I have mostly bass tackle in my tackle box. Can I catch them fairly easily on spinners, plugs, live bait, etc., or do I need something else? I do not own a fly rod.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Tom

No special baits or outfits necessary. I have done well in my younger days drifting a nightcrawler past structure. You can also get 'em on powerbait (best sacked), jigs/maggots, and hardware (spinners, small spoons). Just keep moving around until you find a few fish. Since these fish don't get very large, you don't have to worry about using undersized equipment as you would fishing downstream for steelhead.

these are difently a fun alternative to steelhead, ecspecially on ultra light gear. These sections of the river also have the added bonus of only being 15 min from my house....look out rainbows
