Fishing Report -- May 28 A nice four-hour session on Kahle Lake. My guests boated nearly 30 largemouth. Several nice fish in the two-pound plus range. Rapala Husky Jerks, and Winco's River Darter and Wacky Worm. The Allegheny continues to drop and should be in shape to fish within a couple of days.

Fishing Report -- May 24 The Allegheny River is blown out, and will continue to be unfishable for at least a week. A lot of water needs to be drained out of Kinzua Dam. Kahle Lake has helped take up the slack. A few days ago my friend Tom Fernece and I had an enjoyable evening on Kahle wade fishing with fly fishing gear. We managed around 15 bass, along with a few crappies and bluegills. Today's guide trip on Kahle was productive, as well. We boated 30 to 40 largemouth, including several good ones, the best being in the 4.5 pound range. Wacky worms and Winco's River Darters were two of the more effective offerings.

Fishing Report -- I'd hoped to get my clients out on the Allegheny, but the rapid rise in level had the fish shut down. After less than an hour on the high/muddy water with no action we shifted to Kahle. We caught a pile of largemouth bass, though most of them small. The river is forecast to rise several more feet with the incoming rain in the next couple of days. Looks like the river will be blown out for at least a week.

Kahle Report -- Made it out to Kahle this afternoon for a scouting trip. The bass were very active. Caught around 50 during the three hour session, though many were small (10 to 12 inch) fish. Did get several in the two-pound range, though. The lake is in great shape. Weeds coming up nicely. Water clear. Water temp in the low 60s. The next few weeks will be prime time to combine a Kahle outing with one on the Allegheny.

River Report -- May 8 A very good day. We boated 45 smallies and two nice walleyes. Biggest bass in the 18.5 to 19 inch range. A lot of nice fish from 14 to 16 inches. The walleyes were 20 and 24 inches. Tubes and Husky Jerks. Bass starting to show up around spawning flats. Water fairly clear and 54 degrees.

River Report -- May 6 Back on the Allegheny after a week of high water put a temporary halt to the fishing. A good day. We boated 26 smallmouth bass. Most of the bass were in the 14 to 16 inch range, but we did get a few lunkers including the best of the year so far, a fat 21 incher. Also lost two small muskies. And boated a 27 inch walleye. Most of the fish on Texas-rigged tubes. A few on Rapala Husky Jerks. The river is still a bit high, but is dropping. Excellent water color. 50 degrees.

River Report-- April 25 A good day, especially the first half. We boated 30 to 35 smallmouth and one walleye. More average sized fish today, though about half over 15 inches. Galidas Grubz and Rapala Husky Jerks, mostly. River is in perfect condition; 48 degrees.

River Report -- April 20 On the Allegheny for the second time this spring. Last week's trip trip was a flush, as the river was still too high (due mostly to heavy releases from Kinzua Dam) for good fishing. What a difference a week can make! The river dropped a couple feet. A buddy and I did a scouting trip and caught and released 35 to 40 smallies in less than four hours. We hit perfect conditions, with multiple days of warm weather. All the bass on jerkbaits, Rapala Husky Jerk mostly. One walleye on a Jimmy D Riverbug. Looks like we're up and running.

River Report -- Nov 11 A fairly slow day today. We boated 15 to 20 smallies. Most were in the 12 to 15 inch range, though two 18 inchers and a 19 incher were included in the catch. Tubes. Water temp 45 degrees.

River Report -- Nov 10 A windy day on the Allegheny. A buddy and I fished for six hours, and managed 15 smallmouth bass and four nice walleyes. Most of the bass in the 14 to 16 inch range. Walleyes were 21 to 22 inches. Tubes, craw-jigs, and hard jerkbaits. River temp 46 degrees. Some floating leaves. No problem with weeds.

River Report -- Oct 31 A good fall outing. We had to work for fish, but were rewarded with some nice ones. We boated around 25 smallies, and lost/missed a bunch. Throughout most of the day they were biting lightly, though we had a couple sprees where they jumped on baits. Today's most productive offering was Jimmy D's Riverbug. Also caught some on T-Rigged Yum Dingers, T-Rigged Zoom Speed Craws and Rapala Husky Jerks. Water 50 degrees, and up from last night's rain. Weeds and floating weeds hampered efforts in some areas.

River Report -- Oct 24 Big changes in river conditions during the past week. Water temperature down to 51 degrees, and about 1.5 feet higher than it's been. A very good day today. We boated around 50 smallmouth bass, along with two 20-inch walleyes. 75 percent of the bass were nice sized fish in the 14 to 18 inch range. Jigs were the ticket today, with tubes, hair jigs and jig-worms taking most of the fish. Anyone looking to do a late fall trip should consider setting one up within the next two to three weeks.

River Report -- Oct 10 Excellent day today. Client and I boated 28 smallmouth bass. A dozen of them were 15 to 19.5 inches. Only a couple little guys. We also lost three big smallies near the boat. Most of today's fish on Winco River Darters. A couple on XRaps and Yum Dingers. Water temp 63 degrees and clear.

River Report -- Oct 8 A slow day today. Things started off decent, but we had to scratch and claw for fish after mid morning. Maybe it was the post cold frontal conditions. Anyway, we ended up with a dozen smallies and one nice walleye. On the plus side, four of the smallmouth were quality fish in the 16 to 19 inch range. Water temp was 64; slight color.

River Report -- October 4 Today was pretty typical of recent trips. We boated 30 some smallies during a full-day trip. Several big ones, topped with a 20 incher. Nearly all of today's fish on X-Raps. River level up nearly a foot from Thursday evening's rain. Some color. 68 degrees.

River Report -- Oct 2 A decent day on the river. Like other trips of late, we had to work for fish. We boated around 20 during a six-hour trip. Several good ones in the 17 inch range. Also lost one near the boat that appeared to be close to 20 inches. X-Raps and Winco's River Darter, most of the better fish coming on the Darter. Water low and clear, 66 degrees.

River Report -- Sept. 19 Today pretty much a carbon copy of the prior two outings. 30 some smallies, along with one nice walleye. Several bass in the 18 inch range. Most of them on Winco's River Darters.

River Report -- Sept. 18 The numbers were still down a bit. 31 smallies boated during a full day trip. But lots of quality fish. At least a dozen between 16 and 19 inches. Nearly all of them on X-Raps today. Water low, clear and 65 degrees. Floating weeds and issue in some areas.

River Report -- Sept 17 Not a great day, numbers wise. We boated around 30 smallies during a full day trip, and lost several others. But some really nice fish. Biggest smallmouth was 19 inches. Three others 18 inches, and several others over 15 inches. And a few small ones. Water temperature 65 degrees, clear and low. Some floating weeds, but not overwhelming like some days the past couple of falls. X-Raps and Winco's River Darters.

River Report -- Sept 6 A good day. We boated 38 smallies and two nice walleyes. Most of the bass very quality-sized fish. A good number in the 15 to 17 inch range. (fish in the photo were released after picture was taken) Very few dinks. Walleyes were 18 and 19 inches. Most of today's fish on Winco's River Darter. Water low, clear and 70 degrees. Some floating weeds, but not enough to be a nuisance.

Back on the river after an extended Labor Day vacation. We had a decent half-day morning trip. Numbers down a bit -- around 15 to 20 smallies. But a few nice ones, including one of the guest's personal-best smallmouth, an 18-inch beauty. Water 72 degrees, slight color...a few floating weeds.

River Report -- August 22 40-some smallies today during a full day trip. Also two nice walleyes, and with a few little walleyes. We boated some nice smallmouth particularly in the afternoon (after things clouded up a bit). Still, a lot of dink-sized bass. X-Raps and Winco Solid Body River Darters. Water up to 78 degrees when we got off the water. Low and clear.

River Report -- August 21 Client and I worked hard this morning, for relatively meager return. We caught 15 to 20 smallies during a half-day morning trip, but a lot of dinks. A few decent ones landed. And a couple nice ones lost on jumps. Bright skies, no wind, and low/clear water likely didn't help the cause. Good news was no algae, and little problem with floating weeds. Water temp 73-75.

River Report -- August 17 Another good day on the Allegheny. Client and I boated 55 smallmouth bass and one 20 inch walleye. X-Raps and Winco River Darters. A couple on Ratt-l-traps, too. Water clear and 71 degrees.
