Seventy year old Freeman Rathfon of Mifflinburg, PA came in with this nice 10 pound Steelhead. It was 30 inches long and had a girth of 17 inches. He caught it North of Manchester Falls on Walnut Creek on Salmon egg sack. He said he has been coming up here for a long time and finally got an Angler Award for one. He was very excited.
|Tom Kuhar of Niles, OH brought this nice Angler Award sized Steelhead in. It was 12 pounds 12 ĺ ounces, was 31 Ĺ inches long and had a girth of 18 ĺ inches. He caught it above the Manchester Hole on white sucker spawn.|
|Nineteen year old Maurice Booker Jr. came up with his dad from New Kensington. They came in yesterday and didnít quite make the size for an Angler Award. Today he came back in and showed me this nice 11 pound 6 ounce female Steelhead. She was 29 Ĺ inches long and had a girth of 19 ľ inches. Maurice caught her at the Stop Sign hole in Walnut Creek on a yellow jig. Dad is really proud. |
The rain that we got on Tuesday and then again yesterday seemed to bring some more fish in. They almost are up to Rt. 20 on Walnut and to the Legion Hole on Elk Creek. Down here at the mouth the people seem to be having loads of fun catching and releasing. The Creek is still low but not as low as it was previously. The lake is supposed to be pretty rough for the next couple days so there are not and probably wonít be any boats going out. I had five go out earlier today but they were all back in by 12 noon.
Please, if you are going to fish the Channel Wall, Please bring in your lines for the boaters. It can do hundreds of dollars worth of damage to the boats let alone be a danger to them out on the water if they get line wrapped on their props.
MARINA OPEN: NOVEMBER 8 at 2 PM TENTATIVELY.
Donít forget the marina will be open on November 8, at 2 PM for fishing TENTATIVELY. That means that if the docks are not all out there will be no fishing. These are new docks and it will take longer to get them out then it did the old ones. So be courteous and watch for the signs in the building or call here to find out if it is open. I will blow the whistle at 2 PM if the docks are out and I also will take a picture of the first fish and put it on the web site.
