You can fish there all night if you want to. Remember you can't take minnowsfrom lake Erie unless they are certified disease free, which we do have and at the same price. Anglers are also catching Northern Pike and Pickeral, Walleye, large and small mouth bass, and perch. Best baits for pan fish at Eaton are our certified emerald shiners. Some anglers are also using wax worms or grubbs but the anglers using minnows are doing better on the crappies. We are out of the big golden shiners(pike bait) butwe do have some that are frozen. Sometimes those work just as well as live. Some of the steelhead went back out in the lake with the last blow out of the mile creeks but it's winter and sometimes you have to work for them. Still good numbers but not like it was before the ice broke out and the creeks got high. Lower pools have fresh fish and upper pools have darker steelhead. Egg sacks and single eggs and minnows have been best. Fly fishers have done well with sucker spawn and egg patterns. Perch fishing has been pretty good off Dobbins late afternoon. Some areas on the penninsula have also been good for perch with an occasional steelhead. If your in an area and only catching tiny perch then try moving to another area.

1/26/17 I 'm wondering if this web site is a good thing or bad thing. It seems like all the snaggers are out in full force. I'm going to tell you the creeks are fishable and that's about it. Want the low down with the best spots then stop in and buy something and I'll help you out. Just came back from a dealers show and brought back a lot of reels that are great deals with major savings. Buy it from me and I'll spool you up for the price of the reel with some great line at no extra cost.
1/21/17 The smaller creeks are running fast this morning and tea colored. Scattered mist rain mostly all day. The people that have been fishing the past few days (when it's been fishable) have been doing pretty good catching some silver fish mostly at the lower pools. The reports I've been getting that walmart and kmart have not been able to print new license, so before you leave home make sure you do your license online or vist your local authorized license shop. We don't do license here. If you don't know how to do it online get someone to help you. Print extra copys for free. Here is a quick guide to doing it yourself online. Google search, type buy PA fishing license online. Look for the one that reads buy online from the pafbc web site. Have last years license handy, you will need the cid number. A tip, when it asks you if you want the trout stamp click yes also click yes for lake erie stamp then uncheck and get the combo whicj will save you a few bucks. The rest is pretty easy. Once you print it and sign it your good for the year.
1/19/17 Just now took a look at 4 mile creek and it looks awesome for steelhead fishing. Great flow and a little off color. With the warm tempatures the next few days it should be great fishing depending on how much rain we get on Saturday. I'm sure the rest of the mile creeks are just as nice. Eaton resivour has 6 inches of ice still but you'll need a board or waders to get onto the ice.
1/14/17 Eaton has 10 inches of ice as reported by customers but the shore line is soft maybe hard by today. Steelhead fishing on the mile creeks, good flow and green colored water not dirty. Ice on your eyelets may be an issue. Not sure about Lake Plesant, so if your going there let me know so we can pass it along. The next 3 days including today. Let us see your East End Angler sticker on your vehicle or bucket and spend $10.00 will get a cupon for 2 free dozen lake erie emerald shiners. Does not include certified minnows. This will apply to the first customer in the door that mentions this and has the East End Angler sticker for the next 3 days.
1/13/17 Just took a look at the smaller mile creeks that are close to the store. Looks like they are starting to come down. Maybe some will be fishable later on today and will be good for fishing Saturday and Sunday. If your keeping your fish try to keep the males as the females don't have much meat this time of year. The males have a hook on the lower jaw. I hope everyone that called will stop in. We have good fresh bait and we just smoked a bunch of steelhead. Our most popular flavor is brown sugar burbon so we did a few extra. Howard Eaton might still be fishable with the cold temps last night but you may need a board to get on the ice. Last time anglers fished there we had awesome reports of big crappie and some big norther being caught. They stocked pickerel there and have not talked to anyone that caught any yet. Size limit on pickerel there is 18 inches and pike are 24 inches. Some huge walleye have been caught there as well. We got some Northland jigging spoons that work very good for walleye tipped with some minnows. I'll have a report later today on current ice conditions there and will update as I hear what they are.

Here are some pictures that have been on the camera for some time:
5-8-12 Got some great news to share today. Todd Young of Nazerth PA caught a new PA state record Lake Trout while fishing aboard Eyecon II fishing charter out of North East PA with Captain Scott Snyder. The fish was 39 inches long had a girth of 26 inches and the weight was 29.28 lbs. This was caught off the mountain. Hats off guys for a super great catch!
Wave report for the Lake; click on the link below:
Anglers are NOT permitted to utilize the foot bridge at the dam in order to cross the stream at 4 Mile creek. Anglers must enter the stream from the footpath located on the stream's east side near the Lawrence Park fishing club (between the yellow ropes).
Please remember that the conditions can change from minute to minute or hour to hour. If we post a report that someone caught fish at some point in time or place, that they may have swam away by the time you get there or the conditions have changed & is no longer fishable, which does happen quite often.
