PENNSYLVANIA: Fish Have Been Eating Both Flies & Artificial Lures

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

The fishing has had steady action!

The fish have been eating both flies and artificial lures. Carp on fly action has been great and for a few days we have had them eating flies aggresively! We landing 3 fish in one outing. Nothing like seeing them take a fly and then peel drag off the spool.

PENNSYLVANIA: Lake Arthur – Crappie on Jigs with Bright-colored Twister Tails

Monday, August 6th, 2012

Finally some cooler temperatures have fishing returning to normal!

Reports of walleye catches over the humps and along the road beds with worm harnesses have been coming in.

For crappie, try jigs with bright-colored twister tails in the weed beds.  Several nice catches of channel catfish are being caught.

Many hybrid striped bass are being caught in the 17-20″ size range.  This year class of fish will be legal next year.

PENNSYLVANIA: Susquehanna River – Getting Smallies on both Fly & Spin gear

Friday, July 27th, 2012

Susquehanna River Fly and Spin Fishing Report for June 2012:

This week has been decent and we have been getting smallies on both Fly and Spin gear.

A mixture of small, medium, and large size fish up to 18″ were making it boatside. The larger fish were taking a fly I developed, the “Hancock Craw” fly. It imitates a crayfish very well in appearance and in movement when stripped or at rest.

There are walleye and several species of catfish that also can be targeted for a variety of fishing fun.

PENNSYLVANIA: Lake Erie – Anglers Having Success on Lower Elk Creek

Monday, November 14th, 2011

Low and clear water conditions on all the tribs have continue to provide a real challenge to area anglers with steelhead being very bite shy.

Fish are holding in the pools along Walnut, the Manchester Hole and up to the bridge on Millfair Road. Fish are scattered throughout Elk Creek up to the Legion Hole in Girard and small numbers can be found up to Folly’s End.

Water levels are low enough to allow casting from shore in most areas to avoid spooking fish. 4 lb., and as light as 2 lb. line along with hooks no larger than the 14 to 18 range have become typical tackle.

Anglers were having good success on lower Elk Creek on Saturday with shiners and locally cured single eggs.

The Walnut Creek Access basin has been producing some great fish for the patient anglers with success coming in time blocks typically in the early morning and just before sunset. The basin opening has thinned the upstream crowds along the Walnut Creek Project waters and combined with hunting season and cold weather, a considerable amount of valuable elbow room may now be found especially during the week.

We have had a number of calm lake days, allowing anglers good fishing opportunities along the lakeshore at Trout and Godfrey runs.

Lake Erie water temperature is still relatively warm at 54 degrees. The West County Tributaries were low and clear as of Tuesday afternoon.

PENNSYLVANIA: Many Large Smallies on Both Fly and Spinning Gear

Friday, November 11th, 2011

With the winds and sun in full effect the smallmouth made an appearance for my clients this week.

Congrats to my father and son anglers as they experienced taking smallmouth bass on fly for their first time and end up with many large smallies on both fly and spinning gear. The largest was just over the 20″ mark.

The fall fishing is in full swing and so are our flies so get in on the action while it lasts!

PENNSYLVANIA: Smallies On the Boat On Both Fly and Spinning Gear

Monday, October 31st, 2011

The river has finally been getting back to somewhat normal fishing conditions.

Some nice sized smallies have made there way to the boat for my clients on both fly and spinning gear.

The leaves are begining to fall and colors of autumn are all over the river landscape making a picturesque back drop to reel in some hard fighting football shaped Smallmouth.

PENNSYLVANIA: Good Size Smallmouth Bass the Shape of Footballs

Monday, October 17th, 2011

The fall Susquehanna River Smallie foootball season is well underway.

Good size Smallmouth bass the shape of footballs have been making their way to the boat for my clients this week. They are hitting hard and fighting all the way to the boat with many putting on arial displays by leaping out of the water.

This is a great time to get in on the catching action and experience the Susquehanna River.

Saturday, August 13th, 2011

The Susquehanna River smallmouth bass fishing has been excellent this week with 15 -20 per day coming to the boat along with some hard fighting channel cats, and a few walleye as well.

Flyfishing has been good in certain areas with 15″ plus fish being taken on fly.

The good fishing is now through fall.

PENNSYLVANIA: Summer Pattern – Smallmouth will Begin to Spread

Friday, June 10th, 2011

The Susquehanna River has been fluctuating up and down and there are good windows of opportunity at certain levels.

As the Season progresses into the summer pattern the smallmouth will begin to spread out and the hunt is on! More steady levels through summer means good fishing and then from summer we move into the fall smallie bite where numbers and quality fish coincide.

Get Bent and Sling some String with us!
