License help

Could someone give me some guidance please.

I am a 63 year old resident.

My son and I may go to Erie to fish the tribs.

I know I need a resident license, a trout and salmon stamp.

My question is, do I need the Lake Erie permit if I am only fishing the tribs.

Any help is appreciated.

I haven’t fished the Erie tribs in years, but yes, you need a Lake Erie permit.

that lake erie permit is a rip off. i think thats the permit was started to help the commercial fishermen way back when they decided to end commercial fishing. it was suppose to last a certain time frame. but like everything else...they kept it.


(if thats the permit i am thinking of) but yes...you do need it too.

I think it's being used to maintain and improve the State parking areas, buying bank easement access along the many streams that feed the lake for Steelhead fishing.

There's been a decline in runs over the years.. pretty sure the stocking programs are still inplace for the Steelhead.. Walleye and Perch fishing is going good now out of the Walnut Creek boat access past few years...

bohunr, there is 2 commercial fishermen left, they live in are neighborhood, need any perch this year? $3 a pound you filet, let me no... The permit helps the Sons Of Lake Erie raise walleye's,perch and steel heads for the lake. I would buy a combo lake erie/ salmon/trout stamp

I went up to fish the tribs this year for the first time in a decade or more. I cannot tell you how much better the access is now compared to what it used to be. I believe that is a direct result of the Erie stamp and I will gladly continue to purchase it.

i thought there was only one and he had that place on East Lake Road. then got in some kind of a problem with PFBC and lost it ?


$3 a lb and i filet...you have never seen me filet a fish..LOL, i would be better off paying to have that done too. i did go for walleye with Paul Greiner and his wife on their boat Lake Erie Customer charters. my son and i got our limit right around the 2 hour mark..fast, but FUN .
