Some fat fish are in!

Another girthy steelhead

Check out this Washington strain fish!

Taking a trip up to the headwaters is a beautiful way to explore

The past week or so has produced some of the steadiest action of the season. Multiple hookups are the norm with fish running 6-9 pounds and fat! The Catt has been bumping around 500-600 cfs, and carrying a moderate to heavy stain. When the color allows, swinging big dark streamers with a good profile on a tip can produce some solid yanks. The trick to fishing the higher and stained water is to pick your spots. Fish will be moving, even when the water appears less than prime. Look for soft inside seams above and below heavy water. One common mistake I see in these water conditions is fishing too heavy a tip and casting too far. Fish are gonna hug the bank in water with visibility between 10 and 15 inches. Fish a lighter tip than you would normally be expecting to in the high water, and don't cast too much into the running line, as you won't effectively cover the water holding fish. If water visibility falls below 10 inches, it might be a better idea to check out the smaller creeks in the area. Though far from prime conditions, 10 inches is about my cutoff. 

If you do get out, fish are spread throughout the entire system on the Catt, though still the water between Gowanda and the lake is holding the most. In another week or two, I'd expect the fish to be fairly evenly spread out all the way to Springville. If you want to check out the smaller creeks, it may be worth your while to get up higher in the system. Fish shoot up those creeks really fast with good flows, and we've had solid rain on and off for the past week or so. This keeps the water fluctuating between the verge of unfishable and prime flows- perfect for fish migration. The Ontario creeks have a solid push of browns and more than a few salmon kicking around. The Erie creeks have good numbers of steelhead and to a lesser extent browns. There are even some scattered salmon in the mix in Erie which always makes for an interesting surprise.
