West of Erie and east of Fairview, the Walnut Creek is offers a prolific steelhead fishery. In this 8 mile creek, you can expect to find plentiful steelhead, and also smaller runs of both Coho and Chinook Salmon. The best seasons are Spring and late Fall when either run-off starts or the waters receed.

While most of the fishing is from SR832 downstream (north) to Lake Erie, there is a set of waterfalls that sometimes prevents frish from heading upstream (south) of SR5. So, most fly fisherman stick to the section downstream of SR5 north to Manchester Road.

Note: there are Special Regulations on this river, so make sure to check them out before fishing.

Overall, Walnut Creek is the 48th most popular fly fishing river of all 49 fly fishing spots in Pennsylvania.
