3/4 We are experiencing some crazy weather this week with temps in the 70's on Wednesday, and today, it is snowing and in the teens.  With that, fishing pressure has been minimal these last few days.  A few anglers have been out on Hills Creek catching nice perch using fatheads.  The perch are schooling up and preparing for the spawn.  Trout are being caught at Hamilton and Beechwood, but please remember Trout season is CLOSED!  You can catch them at Hamilton and Beechwood, but they must be released until the season reopens on April 15th.  Most other trout waters are closed to fishing until the season opens.  Be sure to check your rule books or the PFBC website for complete details on special regulation areas that are open to year round fishing.

Spring's coming.  It's time to respool your reels and gear up for the new season.
