Pittsburgh Fishermen Looking North for Erie Steelhead

As summer winds down and autumn slowly approaches, the hands on internal fishing clocks of Pittsburgh fisherman slowly start shifting towards 12:00.  I mean 12:00 due north - to Erie, Pennsylvania.  The fall Steelhead run is right around the corner and anglers are feeling the excitement and anxiety as if Father Christmas was approaching.  Kozelnik Creekside will take part in this seasonal run and hopefully have pictures to go along with our reports.  Share your tales with Kozelnik Creekside and we will feature your Erie Steel head story!  Check back often!

When in Erie support the local economy and bait shops-  A favorite of Kozelnik Creekside is:


Good luck everyone and be kind! - It may be the angler next you who is fishing Steelhead for the first time.

Pittsburgh Fishing with Venture Outdoors TriAnglers Weekly Fishing Club

I work on the North Shore of Pittsburgh on River Road which is a stones throw from the Allegheny River.  I walk the North Shore trail most days during lunch.  I stop every 50 feet or so to check the shoreline habitat for activity of fish.  Every once in a while I'll catch a few roaming carp or shad and it is uplifting to know that the rivers are active with life.

This summer while walking towards the North Shore Riverfront Park I came across a mixed bag of outdoors enthusiast lined along the river fishing in front of the Pittsburgh Pirates ballpark.  It was a welcoming and curious site to see fishing along the banks of the Three Rivers at mid-day during the week.  

It was Venture Outdoors TriAnglers Weekly Fishing Club. The club members ranged from toddler to seasoned angler and all seemed to be enjoying the weather, fishing and each others company.  



In a busy world where work, the economy and everyday worries bog you down -  the sight of multi-generational Pittsburghers "wetting their lines" off of the subtle slopes of PNC Bank park was very comforting.  Kozelnik Creekside salutes Venture Outdoors for a great job in keeping fishing at the forefront of outdoor activities in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  Check out Venture Outdoors for upcoming events!
