River Update -- Aug 11 River trips over the past couple of days have been typical of summertime smallmouth action. Good numbers of bass (averaging around 50 per day) with ones of all sizes in the mix. Biggest of late in the 17 inch range. And they really fight hard in the 72-75 degree water. Getting most of them on X-Raps and Winco's River Darters.

River Update -- July 29 We slammed them yesterday with an approaching front. Lots of bass, and plenty of big ones up to 18 inches. On the backside of the front, things a little slower today but we still boated a bunch of smallies. More small ones in the mix today several 14-16 inchers in the mix. Rapala X-Raps, Winco River Darters and BPS Speed Shad have been the productive baits the past two days. The guide schedule opens up the second week of August, with plenty of time for folks to get in a summertime river smallie trip.

River Update -- July 21 My friend Wes ended his annual fout-day trip with a flourish, as we boated over 40 smallmouth up to 20 inches and a couple bonus walleyes. The Allegheny is finally getting down to typical summertime level and water temperature. July's been a busy guiding month, but openings available for August and September.

River Report -- July 12 Another good river outing, with the water again discolored due to recent rain and storms. Lots of smallies, with plenty of 14 to 16 inchers. Three nice walleyes, including a 28 incher. Most of the fish on Terminator spinnerbaits. Some on Bass Pro Shops Speed Shad, and Bandit crankbait. Water a little high, dirty and 73 degrees.

River Report -- July 9 With improving water clarity and falling river levels, the middle Allegheny is now fishing like it typically does during the summertime. Active fish chasing down moving baits. Today's trip yielded dozens of smallmouth bass, including lots in the 15 to 19 inch range. A couple nice bonus walleyes as well. Bass Pro Shops' Speed Shad, Winco's River Darter and Rapala X-Raps scored big time. I'm booked solid through the end of this month, but have openings in the schedule in August. Now's the time to get on the books for summer river smallies!

River Report -- July 6. Back on the Allegheny today. Smallies were holding tight to cover. Clients worked hard and we rewarded with several nice smallies in the 16 to 18 inch range, plus a nice walleye and northern. Everything on Terminator spinnerbaits. River discolored, 75 degrees, and a couple feet higher than average for this time of year.

River Report -- Jun 28 After a relatively slow morning on Kahle Lake (by Kahle's typical standard) we had a very good afternoon on the Allegheny. Still running high and fairly dirty, but we got smallies up to 18 inches on Terminator spinnerbaits, Galida Grubz, and BPS Speed Shad.

Fishing Update -- Sunday night storms left the Allegheny high and muddy, so off to Kahle Lake we went. Excellent day on largemouths. Hoping the Allegheny will be fishable again by late week.

River Report -- June 18 A nice morning half-day trip. Good numbers of smallmouth, and greater numbers of mid-sized fish in the 12 to 16 inch range than last few trips. Nearly all on Rapala X-Raps. Water fairly clear, low and warm...80 degrees.

June 16 -- Mostly smaller male smallies today as we fished the post-spawn period. Biggest bass was around 17 inches, but most were much smaller. Rapala X-Raps took most of them. One of my clients spent part of the day with a fly rod, and managed a nice smallie on a Clouser Minnow. Water a bit off color with yesterday's thunderstorms. Running about average for this time of year. 77 degrees. Better numbers of bigger bass should start showing up as fish move out of this annual funk.

June 12 Fishing Update: A recent trip on the lower Allegheny for muskies didn't produce any fish, but we did have a follow from a 40 inch-plus musky. Back on the middle Allegheny today, targeting smallies. Spawning activity seems done, with most (maybe all) the adult smallies in the post-spawn period, which can be slow going for quality-size bass. We caught a lot, but most of them small. A 20-inch spawned-out female was the highlight of the trip. Most of the fish on Rapala X-Raps. Water temp mid 70s, average flow, and fairly clear. Smallies should soon be in their summer patterns, which produce some of the highest catch rates of the year.
