10/6/21

Fall stockings are underway in PA.  Hamilton is being stocked tomorrow (10/7).  Section 11 (Slate run area, Lycoming County) of Pine Creek is being stocked on 10/12.  Good numbers of fish did hold over this year with the wet summer season.  Anglers are catching trout on upper Pine still and many of the smaller streams are fishing well too. Water levels are good right now, but expect to see some murky conditions, particularly near marsh creek.

Reports on the lakes have been fair.  Hammond has been fishing best with decent catches of bass and panfish.  A few anglers are seeing some catfish too.  The spillways are both running dirty right now.  Anglers had been catching crappies and smallmouth at Tioga.  If we don't see too much more rain, this should improve again soon.

There are still spots open for the fall 3 day tournament.  More details can be found here- https://www.wellsborotackleshack.com/index.php/events/fall-3-day-bass-tournament

Anglers are catching some salmon, steelhead and browns in the Lake Erie and Lake Ontario tributaries, but most of our customers noted the bite has been somewhat slow and cooler temps are needed to really improve the run. 

 

Good Luck fishing!
