STEEL HEAD: are slowly coming in. There are some trapped up in the holes in Walnut Creek by the bridge. Water temperature usually has to be around 64-66 degrees before they come in.. We had a couple warm days and it cleared up the water and cleared out the fish too. This weekend it is supposed to rain so I would suspect that will bring in the fish.

Fourteen year old Justin Shaulis of Rockwood PA caught his first steel head. It is 30 inches long and weighed over 9 pounds.

WALLEYE: are in 68'-77' of water. They are caught trolling with worm harnesses, plugs and spoon from Elk Creek east to Trout Run. They seemed to have moved out into the trenches. They have been tougher to catch lately too. You can also find them at 080o:29 w and 42o:08 n on the GPS or out in 70' for water. They are deep.

Tyler Brown age 9 of Utica PA came in with this nice 9 pounder.

PERCH: are out in 65' to 68' ft of water. Boaters are picking them up straight out of Walnut and also west of Trout Run. You can also catch them fishing for walleye in 70-73' of water.

Jack McGill brought in this nice 14 in perch for citation. He and his buddy limited. They were in 66' off of Godfrey.

WARNING: There have been some big rocks spotted in the center of the channel so be very careful while coming in and leaving the marina.
