August 21st NW PA Fishing Report

You cannot call it the dog days of summer when anglers are making record catches of walleyes on Lake Erie, big panfish are being hauled in at Conneaut Lake, smallmouth bass are chewing on the Allegheny River and hybrid stripers & white bass (plus crappies) are busting shad schools on Shenango Lake almost every day. Weather forecast is for more seasonable daytime temperatures, so there are no excuses about excessive heat. Now just get out and go fish!

August 7th NW PA Fishing Report

Don’t let the Dog Days of Summer fool you. There is plenty of good fishing opportunities right now in NW Pennsylvania. Yes, the Erie walleye bite continues strong – although the fish are moving about a bit those easy limits are still a daily happening. The Allegheny River and French Creek look in prime shape for summer smallmouth. On inland reservoirs and natural lakes of the region, the talk is about bluegills, catfish, largemouth bass, muskies and Shenango’s hybrid stripers. The hottest crappie bite appears to be Lake Wilhelm and the best perch bite at Pymatuning.

July 24th NW PA Fishing Report

It’s beginning to feel a lot more like a normal summer. Let’s hope it continues so everyone can get back out fishing. The walleye fishing on Erie remains off the charts. If the weather allows you to get out, it’s almost a guarantee to limit out with walleye within a couple hours on the big water. And there are ‘eyes still shallow as well as deep. On inland waters, the best bites seem to be largemouth bass in lakes, bluegills and bowfin. Flowing water smallmouths are in recovery stage after all the high, dirty water. Check the report for more information.
