Now is prime time for crappies here in Tioga County. The bite has been ON all week at Hammond, Tioga, and Cowanesque Lakes. Each day has been different, but across the board anglers are catching fish. Live minnows, crappie magnets, Gulp! Alive minnows, Slider Grubs, and various hard baits are working well. Yellow, Chartreuse, Firetiger, Shad, Silver, and Green colors are all working. Mornings and evenings are fishing best, but anglers are catching them throughout the day too. Crappies are also being caught in good numbers at Beechwood Lake using similar baits.
Trout fishing continues to be good and Pine Creek has dropped to good levels again.
Good luck out there! Tackle Shack will be open normal hours for the holiday weekend
