Local gamefish are slowly transitioning from summer to fall patterns, and the action should improve steadily over the coming weeks.
It's no surprise that the most dramatic improvements have taken place in the Pocono area, where cooler nights have allowed water temperatures to drop more significantly than they have in the Lehigh Valley. Bass and pickerel are noticeably more active at Peck's Pond, Fairview Lake and Shohola Lake, while striped bass are starting to bite at Lake Wallenpaupack.
River fishermen are reporting good catches of smallmouth bass on the Delaware and Lehigh rivers. Hellgrammites are working great for Lehigh smallmouths, while Delaware smallies are keyed in on lures that imitate shad fry. Trout fishing remains tough in most places, but this week's rain should give local stream levels a much-needed boost.
Down at the shore, weakfish action has taken off in many areas as the fluke bite peters out in others. Striped bass and bluefish continue to be taken in good numbers up and down the New Jersey and Delaware coasts, while the offshore bite for swordfish, tuna and dolphin fish is improving.
Anglers Paradise and Marine, Whitehall (610-433-2500): Terry Erney of Allentown has been catching lots of nice smallmouth from Lake Wallenpaupack?he says tube jigs have been working well around docks?Erney also hooked into a 25-pound striper on a tube and chased it with his boat before finally landing it?Leaser Lake panfish and bass still biting well?Lehigh River smallmouths biting hellgrammites above Cementon dam
Nockamixon Sport Shop, Quakertown (215-538-9553): Josh says this week should produce some hot action for striped bass at Lake Nockamixon?head to lake between 5-9 p.m.?overcast days may also produce some striper action during daylight hours?look for fish off of points and throw crankbaits to them?bass at Nockamixon probably not as deep as they have been, and weeds are making a comeback?check out shallower, weedy areas for bass?smallmouth should be starting the fall feed soon at Nockamixon, East Branch Perkiomen Creek and Delaware River?those who just want to catch fish should head to Nockamixon with chicken livers and target catfish in 5-10 feet of water.

Default Fish Report: Oct. 11

C. Berg Morning Call
Fish Report: Oct. 11

I know we needed rain, but 10 inches in a single day isn't exactly what local anglers had in mind.
Last weekend's deluge sent streams and rivers gushing over their banks and caused damaging floods across the region. Needless to say, the fishing was a washout.
Although area waters will remain high and muddy for some time, tackle-shop reporters say the infusion of fresh water ? combined with cooler autumn weather ? is just what we needed to boost angling action. Once the weather clears and water levels return to more manageable levels, expect the bite for bass, trout, panfish and other species to improve markedly.
Of particular interest is the state Fish and Boat Commission's fall trout stocking program, which will provide more than 125,000 fish for 60 lakes and 94 streams statewide. Local waters that either have been stocked or will be stocked by Monday include:
Berks: Antietam Lake, Hay Creek, Kaercher Creek Dam, Manatawny Creek, Scotts Run Lake and Tulpehocken Creek. Bucks: East Branch Perkiomen Creek, Levittown Lake and Lake Luxembourg. Carbon: Mud Run. Lehigh: Little Lehigh Creek and Leaser Lake. Monroe: Brodhead Creek, Bushkill Creek and McMichaels Creek. Montgomery: Pennypack Creek. Northampton: Bushkill Creek. Schuylkill: Little Schuylkill River and Tuscarora Lake.

Down at the shore, high seas and strong winds are making fishing difficult at best. Offshore swells have been running 8-11 feet, keeping most boaters at the dock. A few surf fishermen are picking up some bluefish and striped bass, but the best fall striper fishing is yet to come.
Nockamixon Sport Shop, Quakertown (215-538-9553): Lake Nockamixon spillway should be full of fish in wake of rains?some nice walleyes and stripers should be caught up in pools ?lots of catfish being taken from the lake on medium shiners ?now that water is up, catfish are probably moving up into coves around Haycock and Threemile Run?striper bite at lake is still going strong?Gary McLaughlin of Hilltown Twp. caught an 81/2-pound hybrid striper Oct. 5?Joe Zohill, Quakertown, caught a 161/4-pound purebred striper and 81/2-pound hybrid Oct. 5?Kevin Fulmer, Sellersville, caught a 9-pound, 14-ounce hybrid striper Oct. 2?striper bite should remain good into December?most fish being taken on suspending stickbaits and crankbaits.
Delaware River is now extremely high and muddy ?boaters should check ramps for mud and debris prior to launching?after the water recedes, expect excellent high water fishing with spinnerbaits and tubes
Wallenpaupack Smallmouth bass being taken from Lake Wallenpaupack on Mepps, Vibrax spinners ?catfishing is good, lots of fish from 10-15 pounds ?lots of big bluegills biting mealworms around the shorelines.
Fishing was really starting to pick up before Saturday's rain?Beltzville and Wallenpaupack bass are hitting steadily in 1-8 feet of water?lots of topwater action?crankbaits and spinnerbaits also working

Eastern Pa
Anglers Paradise and Marine, Whitehall (610-433-2500): Bill says bass and striper action is pretty good at Lake Wallenpaupack, Beltzville Lake and Blue Marsh ? some bass are taking topwater plugs and crankbaits?use silver and gold minnow patterns, as crayfish patterns haven't been as effective lately?look for numbers of bass around schools of baitfish?some muskies are being caught in the Lehigh River?trout bite is good in the Little Lehigh Creek?
Pittsburgh
Striped bass and walleyes have been hitting in Ten Mile Creek, said John Ozohonish of Ozies Sport Shop in Rices Landing, Greene County. One angler pulled in a 25-inch, five-pound walleye while fly fishing. The Monongahela River has been getting no attention from fishermen, Ozohonish added.
The fishing has been really slow on the Allegheny River, said Tom Green of Lock 3 Bait and Tackle in Cheswick. Few anglers have been out.
The same is true elsewhere on the Allegheny, according to Matt DeMichele of Allegheny Bait and Tackle in Tarentum. Some people were catching walleyes, however, on jigs and minnows near the dam in Natrona early in the week.
The Beaver River has been full of shad lately, so it's been hard to get already-gorged fish to bite, said Bob Bernhardy of Shooters Place in Bridgewater. Fishermen have been getting some walleyes on small jigs and minnows, though, particularly around Hubba Point and the turbines near New Brighton Dam.
Trout have been hitting in Montour Creek for those using waxworms for bait, said Wayne Lykens of Island Firearms of Neville Island. Those fishing the Ohio River near the mouth of Montour, meanwhile, have been picking up a few walleyes.
There's not been much happening at Yough Dam, but anglers are catching trout from the outflow area in the Yough River, said John Spittal of Nicklows Bait and Tackle in Addison.
Fishing pressure at Lake Arthur in Moraine State Park had dropped off dramatically by late week, but those anglers going out were still catching catfish up to 26 inches on stinkbaits and minnows, said Ron Anderson of Appalachian Trails. Fishermen were also reporting nice catches of yellow perch and the occasional largemouth bass.
At Lake Erie, the steelhead fishing remains off a bit because there's so little water in the tributary creeks. Fish and fishermen are backed up in the lower stretches of each stream, according to reports from the Fish and Boat Commission. A good number of fish were being taken off the wall at Walnut Creek, though, particularly at dawn and at night.

Default Western Pennsylvania Report

"Temperatures guide feeding activity," said the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission's top warm/cool water biologist Bob Lorantas. "Fish will feed more and start channeling energy into egg production when water gets into the 50s."

This weeks report
Allegheny River: A 29-inch walleye was reported at lock 3. Catfish and white bass are hitting from lock three to Pine Creek.
Ohio River: Walleye and hybrid striped bass are being caught at the mouth of Montour Run, the back channel dam, and the mouth of Moon Run under I-79.
Walleye and striped bass have been hitting on the Ohio River, particularly around the mouth of Montour and Moon runs. Worms, shiners and fatheads have all been taking fish.
Lake Arthur (Butler County): Trolling anglers are boating muskie up to 42 inches. Northern pike about 30 inches also are reported. Anglers were fishing over the weekend and doing well on largemouth and hybrid striped bass, but the rain chased everyone indoors.
Youghiogheny River (Fayette County): Walleye up to 24 inches are being caught on shallow running stick baits at the outflow of the Youghiogheny Dam. Nice catches of smallmouth bass are reported on minnows or minnow and crayfish patterns from Connellsville to Layton.
Mononghalea River: Hybrid striped bass, some weighing as much as six pounds, have been providing action on the Mononghalea River, said D.R. Plants of Shadlure in West Elizabeth. Anglers have also been getting some walleye and sauger, mostly on live baits like shiners and minnows, he added. All of the action is coming above the power plant.
Deep Creek Lake (Maryland): George Dressel of Markleysburg boated a 12-pound, 38-inch northern pike, half a dozen smallmouth bass more than 4 pounds, and four legal size walleye. Bob Fisher and Joe Daveler of Uniontown won Sunday's Yough Walleye Association tournament with a 10.7-pound, five-fish limit. Rich Stiver of Bethel Park and Tom Seigar of Hopwood came in second with 9.7 pounds.

The Monongahela River is in fine shape right now, but few people are fishing outside of the weekends, said D.R. Plants of Shadlure in West Elizabeth.

Striped bass and walleye have been hitting on the Ohio River near Emsworth Dam, particularly for those fishing Twister Tails tipped with a minnow, said Mike Pugh of Island Firearms on Neville Island. Small white bass, in the eight-inch range, have also been hitting.

Well, tried Beltsville on Friday night, but only fished for about 1/2 and then a thunderstorm moved in and chased me from the lake. Nothing in the short time I tried.

I had a look at the Pack the other evening.
Water was crystal. Didnt see any sign of bait nor birds. The PPL hadnt put the docking in yet. No boats or fishermen in site. I tossed everything I had in the freshwater box. Couldnt locate anything from shore with the spinner bait. I tossed some walleye spoons hoping for a bump. Didnt cover a lot of area though. Just Mangan cove. It was a nice night though.
Baitshops were all closed at 5:30?

Myself and two buddies fished Beltsville on Friday and Saturday night, 5/5 and 5/6. Friday night we managed to pick up a few stripers around 20 inches throwing plugs, but couldn't get any Saturday night. A cold front pushed through on Saturday and it was a cold night on the water.

Fish Report: May 18, 2007


Fishing is excellent locally and at the shore. This weekend should be a prime time to chase everything from 12-inch trout in Lehigh Valley streams to 12-pound bluefish in the New Jersey surf.

Local fishermen continue to enjoy one of the best trout seasons in recent memory. Dozens of trophies are being caught every week from the Lehigh River and Little Lehigh, Jordan, Monocacy, Saucon, Bushkill and Hokendauqua creeks. Butterworms seem to be particularly effective right now, though traditional favorites such as minnows, spinners and Powerbait also are producing plenty of strikes.

Pickerel are hammering everything that moves at Peck's Pond, and some anglers say you can hardly keep them off your bait. Smallmouth bass action is good in the Lehigh and Delaware rivers. The Delaware also is hot for shad, which are biting all the way from Easton up to the Water Gap.
