Ice fishing continues to be good around the county.  Hamilton, Hills Creek, and Beechwood have best.  A few people have been fishing the Army Corps lakes and continue to note a slow bite.  Out of the area, anglers are fishing Pisgah, Rose Valley, and Lyman Run too.

Hills Creek- The stumps end continues to be the most popular with good catches of bluegills, crappies, bass, and pickerel.  Target water in 4-8 feet.  Shallower/weedy areas are holding bass, pickerel, and bluegills.  Crappies have been out slightly deeper for the most part, in 6-8 fow.  Perch are being caught sporadically in a variety of depths.  Greens, whites, and glows are still the most popular colors

Beechwood is fishing well for trout and a variety of panfish.  Some decent crappies are being caught using minnows and waxworms.  Most noted lots of little perch still too.  A few large bass and pickerel are being caught on shiners.


Good luck and be safe out there!  The weather looks good to hold ice for another couple weeks.
