River Report -- Oct 19 A slow day. Apparently the smallmouth didn't care for the 7 degree drop in water temperature to start off the day. We managed about a dozen smallies and one northern. A few good sized smallmouth, including a double with a couple in the 18 inch range. Also lost two big bass. More bass starting to show up in traditional fall spots. A few on Winco River Darters, including the two biggest. Also caught fish on bucktail jigs and Rapala Husky Jerk. Water level up a bit from last trip, some color, and 47-50 degrees.

River Report -- Oct 14 Back on the river after a couple quick road trips during which I fished the Susquehanna River and Delaware River. Good day today.

River Report -- Oct 4 Today didn't produce big numbers, but it did produce a lot of big smallmouth. We boated 24 and lost a few others. Two 20 inchers, a 19 inch, and a bunch around 17 inches. Very few fish under a foot. A few on Rapala X-Raps, but most on Winco's Solid Body River Darter. Pictured is a nice double we ended the day on a 20 and 17 incher released right after the photo was taken. Water still about a foot above average and slightly stained. 55 to 57 degrees.

Fishing Report -- Sept 21 We had to switch today's trip from the river to Kahle Lake (electric motor only lake) due to my outboard issue. We boated around 20 largemouth and last several others. Most were in the 11 to 14 inch range, though one was 3.5 or 4 pounds. Flukes, X-Raps and Texas rigged plastic worms. Water stained.

River Report -- Sept 13 The drastic weather change didn't affect the river smallies. We boated around 20 during a four-hour half-day morning outing. And lost at least 10 others. Clients experienced two separate doubles. Most of the fish in the 12 to 14 inch range. A half dozen 15 to 17.5 inches. Really on Winco Solild Body River Darters today, in bubblegum. Water just a tad of color from yesterday's all day rain (i.e. not quite as clear as it's been) and 10 degrees cooler (69 degrees from 79 degrees).

River Report -- Another good day summer-tactics day. We boated 43 smallies and lost 12 to 15 others during a day that was shortened an hour due to impending thunderstorms. A wide mix of sizes, from a couple tiny fingerling-sized bass from this year's hatch, to a half dozen in the 16 to 18 inch range. Most of them 10 to 13 inches. A few on X-Raps, but mostly Zoom Flukes. Water temp 78 to 80 degrees, low and clear.

Fishing update -- Clarion River A friend and I did a trip on the Clarion River today. We boated several nice smallies. It was the second trip in my new fishing kakak, the Frontier 12 by NuCanoe. This craft is allowing me to access smaller waters like the Clarion. My intention is to scout out select waters the remainder of the year, and perhaps offer trips on them next year. Look for more updates on these fishing excursions, and the NuCanoe, on this site.

My late morning the bite tailed off and we worked hard for fish the remainder of day. Ended up with 25 or so smallies and two walleyes.

River Report -- Aug 9 A good day on the river. We boated around 30 smallies. No giants today, but several fish in the 14 to 15 inch range. As has been the case for a couple weeks, the action was good early, slacked off during mid morning and early afternoon, then picked up again toward mid afternoon. Flukes and Winco River Darters accounted for the majority of the fish. Several also on Rapala X-Raps. Other baits that produced fish included a jig-worm combo, Galida Grubz and Cordell Big O crankbait. Water low, clear and 74 -76 degrees.

Also lost a walleye right at the boat that was in the 26 inch range. River Darters and Jig/Worm combos took most of the fish. Water temp 77 degrees, low and clear.
