Bass Season opens this Saturday and fishing has been very good across the region. Anglers are finding post spawn fish holding in shallow water near weed beds and timber. Some fish are being caught deeper too on weed edges and submerged points. Tournament season kicks off next week too. Be sure to check out Tioga County Bass Anglers and CV Bass League for their tournament schedules.
Crappie fishing has slowed on most of the lakes. Anglers are finding lots of small crappies on Hammond and Cowanesque still holding closer to shore. Tioga has fished best for crappies, again anglers are finding lots of small ones, but bigger fish have been plentiful too.
Pine Creek continues to fish very well. Water levels are great for wading right now and hatches have been plentiful. BWOs, sulphurs, slate drakes, and various caddis and stoneflies have been hatching. Butterworms, waxworms, and mealworms are all working well too.
It's going to be another nice week. Get out and enjoy it.
Good Luck Fishing!
