Surf Side Silver

Between last weeks gale-force winds and the remnants of a nasty late-summer algae bloom, Lake Erie water condtions have been terrible. Yesterday's forecast was for calm and sunny, so Jeff Liskay and I set off to search for some decent water to pitch streamers in the surf. We hit a number of tributary mouths on the east of the lake with good results. Sun and good surf fishing rarely go hand in hand, but yesterday they did. Steelhead were cruising the edge of the dirty lake water and clear tributaries. We hooked a number of fish on flashy, multicolored streamer paterns fished on intermediate tip lines.
