We get these questions a lot. What time is best for wade fishing? What is the most popular fish caught in Lake Erie? What's the largest fish caught in Lake Erie? The optimal time for wade fishing largely depends on factors such as tide, water temperature, and fish feeding patterns, but generally, early morning or late afternoon to early evening are the most productive times. These periods coincide with the changing tides and reduced light conditions that often stimulate fish to feed more actively. As for Lake Erie, the most popular fish species caught is the walleye due to its abundance and delectable taste. Anglers also appreciate the challenge it presents as walleyes are known for their elusive behavior. The largest fish ever caught in Lake Erie is a massive lake sturgeon, which can grow up to several hundred pounds and measure several feet in length. While once abundant in the lake, sturgeon populations have drastically declined due to factors like overfishing, habitat loss, and pollution. However, conservation efforts are ongoing to restore their numbers and secure the future of these impressive prehistoric fish.

Cattaraugus Creek Fishing Report

Hey there, this is Captain Tyler Hageman from Around The Bend Fly Fishing, and I've got an exciting report for all the anglers out there. I recently took a trip down to Cattaraugus Creek, and I have to say, the smallmouth bass are really biting! The water conditions were just right, and we had a great day out on the water. We managed to catch quite a few smallies, with some of the larger ones tipping the scales at over 4 pounds. We were using a variety of fly patterns, but the most effective seemed to be a Clouser Minnow in a chartreuse and white color scheme. If you're looking to get in on some great smallmouth bass action, then Cattaraugus Creek is definitely the place to be right now. So come on down and join us on the water, and let's catch some fish!
