Finally some good news to report!  Cowanesque Lake is open and so is the campground boat launch at Hammond Lake (Ives Run).  A few anglers fished Cowanesque yesterday and did very well bass fishing.  Visibility is improving on both lakes.  I am still waiting for more info on Tioga Lake.  Warmer and sunny today.  We are finally setting up to start the crappie bite again. 

Pine Creek is at much better levels.  It is still a little high this morning, but it is coming down.  It will be in good shape for the weekend.  We stopped at a small feeder creek for a little late yesterday and good numbers of caddis and rusty spinners were in the air.  Anglers caught fish yesterday nymphing out towards gaines, and live bait fishermen did well with mealworms, live minnows, and night crawlers.

Good Luck out there!
