Deer season has many people in the woods instead of on the water, but those that are out have bene rewarded with good fishing in the spillways. Smallmouth, perch, and walleye have been biting at Cowanesque and Tioga spillways. A few anglers have been fishing the lakes too with mixed success. Water temps are quickly dropping.
Trout are still biting on Hamilton and in many of the area trout streams. Mealworms, butterworms, and small rapalas are working. Fly fishermen are catching some nice ones using streamer patterns and sculpin imitations.
The longterm forecast for December is very promising! We should start laying down ice around mid December. Check back for updates here and on our facebook page.
