Trout fishing continues to be good throughout the county and in season stockings are underway.  Heavy rains are expected tonight and conditions could be tough for the weekend.  We will try to update again tomorrow.  Feel free to call or message us on Facebook for current info as well.  Stony Fork, Asaph Run, and Crooked Creek have all been popular this week with anglers doing well on chartruese trout magnets, white and pink salmon eggs, butterworms, waxworms, and a variety of spinners.  

Perch were biting well on Hills Creek these last few days.  Redworms and nightcrawlers were best.  Crappies are being caught too.  The bite hasn't been great, but a few are doing well on live minnows.  

Crappies are also being caught on Hammond in small numbers.  From shore, anglers found them just inside casting range off rocky shorelines, suspended a few feet under the surface.  Boaters found some on deeper structures and along the creek channel.  No big numbers are being caught, but some quality black and white crappies have been taken.  Live minnows have been best.  As temperatures rise, the bite will improve.  Again, heavy rains could affect the water levels and clarity by tomorrow.

Good luck fishing!
