Central Pennsylvania Trout Update

2019-10-31T08:54:23-07:00

By: Isaac Zettle High water is good for catching large trout. Fortunately, or unfortunately for some, we’ve been contending with high water in Central Pennsylvania since the season opened. It seems like since the start of trout season we’ve been getting hit with big storm after big storm. Many of our creeks have been high [...]

By: Isaac Zettle With the statewide trout opener in the rear view mirror Pennsylvania anglers are looking forward to another two weeks of heavy trout stocking.

Penns Creek Good for Winter Trout

2019-10-31T08:54:21-07:00

By: Isaac Zettle Although we hear it may be coming this weekend, we haven’t had a winter in Penn’s Valley this year. We had one snowstorm where a foot fell and then it melted in a week, and another with only a few inches. For the most part we’ve had lots of rain. This year [...]

Western New York Streams Loaded with Trout/Salmon

2019-10-31T08:54:16-07:00

By: Isaac Zettle Western New York is in the heart of another strong salmon return and fresh fish continue to migrate into these tributaries daily. We have also been seeing brown trout and steelhead for a few weeks now. Personally, I think the trout are early this fall. I just got back from another successful [...]

Central Pennsylvania Trout Still Showing Strong

2019-10-31T08:54:11-07:00

By: Isaac Zettle It rained nonstop in July and August in Central Pennsylvania. Our water levels were so high that most of our creeks flooded. Some rose into major flood stage. We had more than two weeks of nonstop rain. Then it took about two weeks for the water to come back down to fishable [...]

Learn to Use a Fire Worm: Catch More Trout

2019-10-31T08:54:02-07:00

By: Isaac Zettle I’ve fished for trout almost daily this year. Some days catching is easy. However, there’s other times when trout won’t grab salmon eggs, lures or dough bait. When trout get lockjaw it’s important to change your presentation. I do this by molding Fire Bait into what we call a Fire Worm. The [...]

PA’s Bald Eagle Creek Still Loaded with Trout

2019-10-31T08:53:56-07:00

By: Isaac Zettle For nearly a month it rained almost daily in Central Pennsylvania. The month was wet and made trout fishing challenging due to high water. In fact, we lost many days because creeks and rivers were too high and muddy. Fortunately, the waters have receded and are fishable again. The good news is [...]

2019-10-31T08:53:41-07:00

By: Isaac Zettle Over the last few days a group of friends and I make our annual winter pilgrimage to Western New York to steelhead fish. Prior to our trip reports indicated that anglers were catching lots of steelhead in Lake Ontario tributaries. However, just before we left the temperature rose, it rained and water [...]

Western NY Streams: Salmon Update

2019-10-31T08:53:35-07:00

By: Isaac Zettle Salmon have been running in the creeks of Western New York for a while now and after spending a week fishing here it’s clear that salmon fishing is way better than it has been for several years. This week we saw and caught more fish, larger fish and salmon that were in [...]

Spring Creek Trout Finicky With Heavy Pressure

2019-10-31T08:53:07-07:00

By: Tom Armstrong Following a Northern Ontario to Pennsylvania for a fishing/sports weekend this FireBlog has a different twist. I flew south late last week and teamed up with Chris Shaffer of Pautzke to catch golden rainbows and steelhead while also hitting a slough of sporting events (Penguins, WVU football & Penn State hockey). I’ve [...]
