We went up in October a few years back. Rain and sleet the first day. Snowed 2 feet the next. If you're going up in November you may wish to pack your thermal thongs....but one fish is worth the trip.

11/12-11/16 looks like a strong possibility. I'll let you guys know in the next day or two. I can't think about it too much or my mind'll turn to mush. That's been happening a lot lately- too much fishy, not enough worky. Golly gee whilickers I'm excited! -Knox

We had an excellent presentation by TJ Roy from Orvis at our Rocky River TU meeting last night on Steelhead fishing in the great lakes. Very informative. Hope you guys have lots of fun. Listening to TJ and watching his eyes light up makes me believe you will.

Alright guys. Step 1 is a success: clearing the trip with my wife. Step 2 is to be tackled on Mon: making sure everything with work is taken care of. Are you guys definitely in for 11/12-11/16? -Knox

Bossman said " You should be okay" for the 15 & 16. Are yall cool with driving up Friday night?

Also are we set on locations? Baldwin MI is about 2.5 hrs further from Bristol than Buffalo, but from what I'm hearing much less crowds and in a rural setting. Erie is closer, but I keep hearing horror stories about people stacked up on those tribs every 5 ft. How was your experience up there with respect to crowds Blake? Your previous trip and some scouting help from thelow are a bib bonus.

If we want to take the rest of the conversation off line my email is lsnipes79@gmail.com

Hey guys glad you are getting your trip together! As for the atmosphere on the Erie tribs I think you are getting bad info or info about the tribs in Erie, PA. Those PA steams are a nightmare! NY Erie tribs from Hamburg south to Westfield run through very small quant towns, farmland, or gorges. There are 7 fishable streams in that stretch. All are very easy to get to and scout on I90.

If you do decide to come to NY I can recommend places to stay, eat, etc. One other nice thing about NY is that if Erie is not fishing well you can make the grand bounce and fish the Lake Ontario steelhead tail waters (about an hour drive)

Jeez I should be getting a check from the damn Western Ny travel board!

That sounds more like it. The guys I was talking to are PA guys.

I don't know about a check, but I think we can spring for some beers.
