Lake Erie Tributary Stream Flows

Below is USGS stream gauge data in real time to help you decide where to fish for Lake Erie steelhead. This data is helpful after a big rain to determine which rivers are going to fish first. You will want to fish mid way through the drop after a good rain. The Vermilion and Grand rivers are usually the last rivers to clear after a rain for reference.  The streams in Pennsylvania clear the fastest.

 

Each stream gauge station reports real time flow and level data below.  In some cases a gauge will go down due to ice or debris.
