I hear a lot of positive talk around here about creeks and feeder creeks. Are these creeks that dump straight into lake Erie? the main river? or both?... Do steelhead seek the creeks out when the water in the main river is high and unfishable? What size are we talking? Methods? Could someone please enlighten me about creeks?

If there is water enough in any of the trickles they will try and go up them. In Pa. I have seen them in feeders about a yard wide at several different creeks. Look at some of the culverts below roads etc. That's the best place to look without a lot of walking.

I've never actually fished them because there was no place to fight the fish but if they are in that system hike and look for a bigger spot on the creek.

Technically everythings a feeder. Rocky, Grand, Elk, etc. all feed Lake Erie. But when people say feeder creek I think they mostly mean small tribs to bigger streams like the ones I mentioned.

Yep, feeder creeks that feed rivers. And creeks that feed Erie. Even creeks that feed feeder creeks. You'll find fish there, often steelies will spook more easily there because they can see you. These will be fishable more quickly after rain than main rivers.
