Colder weather is on the way as water temperatures finally drop towards the late fall bite in Northwest Pennsylvania. Recent storms have muddied many flood control lakes and raised the flow of the Allegheny and area creeks/streams. Blown out Steelhead streams are already dropping and the bite should be outstanding by the time you read this. The Allegheny River and French Creek will take longer to recede to fishable levels. It’s time to squeeze in as much fishing as possible before winter arrives.
