Middle Allegheny River Update -- June 27. The river has been off color much of the past couple of weeks. We're getting some nice opens, mostly on spinnerbaits, but the numbers have been down (typical of things when the water's dirty). Spinnerbaits and flukes.

Pymatuning Walleye Report -- As of late June, we're catching some very nice walleyes on Pymatuning. Not racking up big numbers, but getting walleyes up to 25 inches. I'm only doing full day trips to Pymy. Get in touch with me if you'd like more details on available dates and such.

Keystone Report -- As of late June we're catching Keystone Power Dam bass around typical summertime locations. Getting largemouth and smallmouth too. Keystone can be challenging, but for those up to it offers nice rewards.

Pymatuning Report -- May 27 Following up on reports of a decent daytime walleye bite on Pymatuning, my friend Sid and I did a scouting trip today and put several nice walleyes in the boat. I can do a limited number of Pymatuning walleye trips provided the daytime action stays consistent. Give me a shout if you'd like to discuss details.

Fishing Update -- It's been a good though challenging last couple of weeks. River bass had moved into shallow spawning areas. We had several successful guide trips for both smallmouth and walleyes. Then heavy rains washed the river out. We switched to Keystone Lake and did well on both smallmouth and largemouth. As of today, the river's back down to a good level and we're back on the bass. Though I will continue to update fishing reports on this page, more frequent updates appear on my Facebook page. Be sure to "like" it so you see all the action!

River Update -- May 3 River trips during the past couple of days are producing smallies in and around spawning flats. Most are starting to come on soft jerkbaits. Water temp 60 degrees.

River Update -- River trips that past two days have included smallmouth bass in spawning areas. Not there in great numbers yet, but with the current warm up they should show up big-time soon. The week of May 7 should be good. As of now I still have some weekday openings. We're getting them on Z-Man TRD Tubez and Rapala jerkbaits.

River Report -- Mike and Chuck put in a full day and were rewarded with a bunch of nice smallmouth bass up to 19 inches. Rainy and windy, but Z-Man tubes and Rapala Husky Jerks did the trick. Water level normal, clear and 50 degrees. I expect smallies will be moving to spawning flats if we get the forecast warm up next week.

River Report -- April 25 With the Allegheny dropping two feet over the past two days we were back on 'em. Great day for the Horvath group from Uniontown. Lots of bass, with plenty of big ones, including two 20 inchers. A few walleyes, too. Finesse tubes, hair jigs and Rapala RipStop jerkbaits. Water temp 46. Level a little high, dropping and clearing.

Fishing Report -- April 21 Looks like the Allegheny will be back down to decent shape by Wed. In the meantime, I fished a small reservoir with a good smallmouth population. Worked out well as we boated 30 between 14-18.5 inches in a little over 4 hours. I have a limited number of open weekdays during the coming two weeks. No weekend dates until mid May.

River Report -- April 15 Another excellent outing. 60 smallmouth, nearly all between 14 and 18.5 inches. A few walleyes too. Finesse tubes and jerkbaits. Water temp 49; clear. Rain coming in tonight so that's about to change considerably.

River Report -- April 14 Great day. Lots of smallies. Lots of doubles. Lots of big brown bass in the 15-19 inch range. Tubes and suspending jerkbaits. River 49 degrees and in great shape (for now). Big rain heading this way so that will likely change.

River Report -- April 13 Looks like it's going to be one of those springs. River just getting back to nice shape after two weeks of high water. But with over two inches of rain predicted Sunday/Monday it looks like this window of opportunity will be short. We got the Allegheny Grand Slam today -- musky, northern, walleye and smallies. Biggest bass 17 inches. Husky Jerks and tubes. Water temp around 44 degrees.

River Report -- March 29 River on the rise thanks to two days of steady rain. Managed a few nice ones today on hair jigs and twister tail grubs. Looks like the river will be high and muddy for a few days. Today's water temp 41 degrees.

River Report -- March 25 First smallie trip of the year, and a good one considering water temperatures of 39-40 degrees. A bunch of smallies, all from 15-17.5 inches. Tubes, finesse jigs and Galida Grubz. If you're up for the challenge of early spring river smallie fishing, the time has arrived. The bite should continue to improve this week with the warming air temperatures and milder nights.

Lower Allegheny -- March 18 With walleye season over, and the water still too cold to get the smallies going, we targeted muskies this afternoon. Boated a fat 36 incher and lost another. A friend fishing the same area boated a 38 incher.

Fishing Update -- March 15 Finally got back on the river after over two months of inactivity due to ice and high water. Trips to Pool 6 of the Allegheny and the Parker area produced walleyes up to 26 inches as well as the first smallie of the year. Things are looking up! Smallmouth action should kick in by early to mid April May should provide good walleye action on the river, and largemouth fishing on Kahle and Keystone. And if the Pymatuning walleye bite is good we'll be doing trips there as well.

Fishing Update -- Dec. 3 (sorry for being negligent with updates of late. My Facebook page is updated regularly.) The past month has included two high water periods on the Allegheny. During that period bass and walleyes have moved into late fall locations. Lots of bass -- and plenty of big ones -- mostly on tubes and hair jigs. As of today the water temperature is around 40 degrees. Still getting bass, but the days are probably numbered for smallies. The walleye bite has been good the last week. Today's trip produced the "Allegheny Grand Slam," smallies, walleyes, northern pike and musky.

Weekly Update -- Oct 25 I've ran several river guide trips since last outing, all productive. The prolonged summer-like weather is keeping some river smallies in warm water patterns, while others are gradually moving into late fall spots. With the arrival of fall weather, river smallies will be moving into the autumn locations, with walleyes adding to the mix. The promise of great late fall fishing is near, so contact me now to set up a trip!

River Report -- Weekly Update Oct 18 We've run many trips since last update. Autumn fishing is progressing nicely, with plenty of quality-sized smallmouth bass in the mix. Water temperatures are slowly dropping, and bass are gradually moving into their classic late-fall locations. As of today (Oct 18) water temperature is around 57 degrees. We should be in late fall patterns within a week or two...BIG BASS TIME!!!

Weekly River Update -- Oct 9 I've been on the water most days the past week, running trips and also enjoying the fine fall fishing with family and friends. Even thought the water temperatures remain warm, river smallies are starting to show up in traditional late-fall spots. And there are still plenty of fish using shallow, faster current areas. We are getting lots of bass, plenty of 15-20 inchers, and a few nice walleyes in the mix. Lots of trips are booked this fall, but plenty of open dates remain. If you're interested in a fall outing give me a shout!

River Update -- Oct 2 Several river guide trips have passed since my last update. As the days have shortened, and the water slowly cools, more and more bigger bass are showing up in the mix. We've been getting good numbers of 15-20 inch smallies on all trips the past week, a trend likely to continue as conditions cool off further. No telling how long the fall big-fish bite will last ( though typically it extends well into November)so schedule a trip now!

River Report -- Sept. 23 Tom and grandson Luke made the trip up from the Pgh area to put in a full day on the middle Allegheny. Good early morning bite, with several quality-sized smallies coming on soft jerbkatis. Things got tougher after the fog cleared and the cloudless sky appeared. Later in the day we had good action on Bass Pro Shops Speed Shad and Gailida's Grubz (fished as a swimbait). Water's low, clear and back up to 75 degrees.

River Update -- Sept 22 We've been out several times since my last report. The river smallmouth fishing has been good, with lots of fish, and more quality-sized ones in the mix. We're getting them on topwaters, X-Raps, Winco's River Darter, and other soft jerkbaits. Also be sure to "like" my Facebook page to get regular fishing updates.
