A buddy and are going to break in his new camper by heading to Elk Creek between Xmas and New Years and try our luck with some steelies

Have any of you camped there and if so any advice would be helpful as to camp grounds and general location to fish.

Appreciate it

I second Follys End. Elk Creek is an easy stream to fish, combat fishing at its best.
they have a website:
follysend.com
its located just south of 90.

if you need any more info, PM me. I live 60 miles east and know the area quite well.

As with all the "Creeks", keep an eye on the weather. They'll blow-out in a heartbeat, but also come down just as fast

Fishing can be downright stupid :D

Depending on how cold it gets in the Erie region you may run into some problems on Elk with slush, shelf ice, etc... All Erie stream flows are dependant on run off, and they recieve very little natural spring flows, making them quite prone to ice problems. The only sure fire creek to be ice free in the winter is 16 mile creek (there is a warm water treatment plant about a mile and a half upstream on the creek). Check out Steelhead Alley Outfitters for reliable reports and conditions. You might want to look into fishing Cattaragus Creek in New York, fishing in the Seneca Valley Indian reservation can be quite awesome in the winter.

Good advice.
