Near Albion, the Conneaut Creek is a popular steelhead fishery with fly fishermen. Conneaut Creek flows 40 miles from its headwaters south of Conneautville through Erie County on the way to the Lake Erie confluence near Conneaut, Ohio. This stocked river is home to steelhead, smallmouth bass and pike. The river has many pools, runs and riffles, but the bottom is an atypical silt and sand.
The steelhead typically enter the creek near the end of October and run the length of the river through the end of April. When the water temp is in the high 40s to low 50s, the agressive steelhead will chase wet flies.
The two major access areas are off Griffy Road south of the town of Clover and SR6N.
Overall, Conneaut Creek is the 41st most popular fly fishing river of all 49 fly fishing spots in Pennsylvania.
