River Report -- Oct 5 Regular guest Dave H. came up for his second trip in the past few days, this time with first time guest Don, both from Pgh area. It was a four-hour trip starting at noon, and the bite was finicky. Water temperature had climbed a few degrees which often isn't a good thing this time of year. Lots of little ones, and a few 14 to 16 inchers.

Steady action throughout the six hour outing as they put a bunch of chunky river smallies in the boat. Most in the 12 to 14 inch range, the biggest going 18 to 19 inches.

Fishing Update July 26 Past clients Jonathan and Tiffany joined me for a morning outing today. We spent a couple hours on Kahle and boated a bunch of 12 inchers. Then we dropped down to the Allegheny for a shot at some river smallies. Managed a half dozen up to 18 inches the last two hours. The river's still running high but clarity is acceptable. I'm booked the next couple of weeks with openings starting mid August.

River Report -- June 29 Another grinder of a morning with regulars Ed and Thomas N from the Akron, Ohio area. Some decent topwater action the first hour of the outing while it remained foggy. Things slowed dramatically after the sun appeared, with occasional smallies showing up. Nothing photo-worthy. Water temperature was 82 when we got off the river around 130 pm. With rain and cooler temperatures forecast for upcoming days the smallmouth bite should improve. I'm off the water until early next week, pursuing some fun fishing options and allowing the holiday weekend to pass. Openings in the schedule start July 16 with several scattered throughout the remainder of the month.
