Working to improve
Pennsylvania Steelhead fishing for all !

Meetings of the PA Steelhead Association

The PA Steelhead Association holds regular monthly meetings except in the summer months of May, June and July at 7:00 pm on the second Wednesday of the month usually at the American Legion Post 773 at 4109 West 12th Street in Erie. This is on the south side of West 12th Street (State Route 5), just east of the Erie Airport. 

We meet in the banquet room (to the left when you walk in). We encourage and welcome members to attend to share their views and opinions and of course the local public is always welcome. Meetings focus on items pertaining to the mission of the club, fund raising events, and local public and political issues affecting our fisheries. The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission is frequently represented at our meetings for questions and recommendations and of course there is plenty of time to discuss fishing, local secrets, and the catch of the day. We usually have an interesting main presenter with a fishing related program.

Kayak Fishing Presentation

My name is Zack Klan and I am the Kayak Fishing Specialist at FishUSA. I have been kayak fishing for 6 years now and have been fishing competitively for the past 2 years. I primarily fish for bass, both Largemouth and Smallmouth, but will cross over into other species from time to time. Erie has been called home my entire life. I fish all over the county and even managed to travel to a few other states to fish out of a kayak; New York, Ohio, Michigan, Tennessee, and Oklahoma. Locally, you can always find me on Lake Erie, Presque Isle, Lake Pleasant, Eaton Reservoir, Edinboro Lake, and French Creek. I have experienced all types of weather conditions while fishing from a kayak, even snow! From a competitive side, I fish tournaments put on by a couple organizations, Kayak Angler of Western PA and KBF (Kayak Bass Fishing). To date, my best tournament was held on Lake George in upstate New York. There were 143 anglers and I finished in 43rd place. I was not able to cut a check from that one but it was the trip, the experience, and the ability to do what I love that makes it all worth while.


During the Kayak Fishing presentation, I will touch on how I got started with kayaking, my set-up, kayak safety, fishing from a kayak, the benefits that a kayak can provide, along with answering any and all questions. There are many fishing techniques that can be utilized on a kayak such as using conventional gear, fly fishing gear, and even trolling gear. As long as there is just a few inches of water to float on, you can go kayaking and catch a fish for yourself!
