Steelhead report <,b>

Single eggs, egg sacs, hare’s ears tied with gold ribbon, size 14 black nymphs, waxworms and minnows were catching steelhead in Lake Erie’s tributaries this past week.

Steady rain mixed with mild temperatures have brought fresh fish into the streams on a regular basis, and anglers have been reaping the benefits.

According to reports from the area, the fishing was good to excellent. Fishermen were finding good action throughout the Walnut Creek project waters, at the Manchester Hole and at the Girard Borough Park, Folly’s End and McKean Holes.

Fish were a common sight in the tailwaters of just about any hole on any stream. Those willing to park at some of the most popular spots and walk upstream were able to find some good fishing without the usual crowds.

The Walnut Marina Basin was hot during the early morning hours. Shoreline anglers also have been faring well at the mouths of Trout and Godfrey runs.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
