4/15/16  It's Here!  Trout season opens tomorrow at 8AM.  Pine Creek and most of the other streams in the area are at great levels and temperatures.  Weather is supposed to be absolutely beautiful all weekend.  It's going to be an awesome weekend for fishing, get out and enjoy it!  We expect this stretch of warm weather to really get soem of the major fly hatches going too.  keep tabs on the local hatches by checking out the 'Current Fly hatches' report.  This section is updated almost daily with reports from our fly tyers on Pine Creek.

This warm weather SHOULD help turn the crappies on in the lakes as well.  We talked to anglers on Hammond and Cowanesque these past few days and still they noted cold water and a very tough bite.  One angler managed a few nice carp out of Hammond, but no crappies yet, at the campground boat launch.  Hammond is still dirty through most of the lake.  

Bass fishing continues to be tough this week, but anglers are catching them using a variety of techniques.  Again, this should improve this week.

Good luck fishing this weekend!  Please send us your pictures of the big ones!  Merry Fishmas my friends.
