Conneaut Creek

Tip of the week 

Casting streamers to fallen trees or big boulders that provide cover for smallmouth bass. Throwing topwater flies for smallmouth in the early morning or evening. Stripping small nymphs or crayfish along the bottom when sight fishing for feeding carp.

Seven-day forecast 

Conneaut is up and still somewhat dirty from the recent rains. Look for the river to level out over the next few days. Friday may be your best bet to fish. More rain coming over the weekend will make the river unfishable for a while.
