Fishing in Erie

When someone mentions Erie, our thoughts immediately go to the Great Lakes and the fishing mecca that Lake Erie is. Nestled right next to its central basin is the city of Erie, where freshwater anglers come for a productive day on the water. Newcomers are impressed by the sheer number of fish here, and Erie, PA fishing charters love showing off their fishery.

If you’ve ever been to Lake Erie, then you know that Walleye fishing is all the rage. Walleye are the most popular and desired catch, especially in the summer months, when you can land impressive specimens. Locals also love going after Steelhead and Lake Trout, as well as Yellow Perch, Smallmouth Bass, and even Salmon.

Deeper parts of the lake are where most of the action takes place, but fishermen who’d like to stay closer to land also have good options. Presque Isle Bay and its state park are known for solid Crappie, Perch, Sunfish, and Bass numbers. Rock, Smallmouth, and Largemouth Bass prefer the bay to open waters, which is great news for Bass chasers. You can even hook into  Musky and Pike here.

When a town lives and breathes fishing, there are dozens of charters and trip types to choose from. Half day and full day trips are most popular, alongside specialized expeditions where you’ll target a species of your choice. Beginners and families often fish the bay, while experienced anglers hit the offshore waters.

Erie, PA fishing charters usually depart from the Lampe Marina and Presque Isle State Park.

Rules & Regulations

Local captains usually provide all the tackle and fishing tips you need. It’s up to you to show up with a valid Pennsylvania fishing license or a Combination Trout/Salmon permit if you plan on going after Trout species.

Erie Fishing Seasons

January

Head to the creeks for ice fishing if the ice is thick enough. You can also visit the bay, armed with large golden shiners which Northern Pike find irresistible. Or you can get some rest before the spring season, it’s up to you.

February

Ice fishing in the bay can be pretty good if the weather conditions allow for it. Dress well, bring a big thermos with hot coffee, and spend your day targeting Perch with minnows or Steelhead with egg sacks.

March

The weather is changing for the better, which has anglers reaching for their gear. You could find Walleye, Perch, Steelhead, and Smallmouth Bass, especially if you focus on fishing the tributaries. 

April

If you’re in the mood for Lake Trout fishing, the time to make it happen is April. Jigging and trolling enthusiasts will also enjoy exploring the tributaries for early season Walleye. 

May

May brings on the heat, both on Lake Erie and in the Presque Isle Bay. Get your hands on Walleye, Perch, and Smallies, and don’t forget about those gorgeous Lakers. Bass and Trout action is at its best this month.

June

Steelhead are hanging out offshore, Bass are biting, and Walleye anglers are ready and equipped to get their hands on Lake Erie's superstar catch. Perch fishing is getting better every day.

July

The deeper waters of Lake Erie’s central basin hold impressive numbers of Walleye and Trout, with some bragworthy Walleye out there for the taking. In the bay, anything from Crappie to Catfish is biting.

August

Anglers are trolling dipsy divers with spoons, ready to battle the biggest Walleye they can find. It’s all about these mighty fish in the summer, and the bite is as productive as ever.

September

This is one of the best months to come to Erie and spend a couple of days fishing. You can target Walleye and Steelhead, jumbo Perch, and epic Bass in the bay.

October

As the fall progresses, Walleye move into deeper waters, but you can still hire an Erie, PA fishing charter to help you find your prey. Steelhead are roaming around, searching for food, not to mention Yellow Perch that love this weather.

November

With the cold front coming in, both the guides and the fish take a break and there are fewer anglers around the lake. Perch become the go-to species to target in the late fall, because they don’t mind the cold and they’re hungry.

December

Long and cold December is great news for ice anglers, who are ready to embrace the low temperatures for a chance to catch enough Perch for a nice meal or two. Steelhead can be found under the bridges.
