NW PA Fishing Report: The third week of January, and so far this has been an On-n-Off winter. At the present time, there is no truly safe ice cover on area lakes – certainly nothing I would consider walking onto. The Allegheny River and French Creek remain extremely high, although receding…but with more rain com-ing. Erie tributary stream levels have settled down, and with reports of a fresh run of steelhead having moved in during high water so that is where most fishing action will take place in coming days. Of course if you choose to drop a line into small headwater streams, you might enjoy the success that Jeff Knapp did this week with a beautiful wild brown trout!
The NW PA Fishing Report provides timely angling information for Crawford, Erie, Mercer and Venango Counties – covering all species and all waters open to the public. The fishing comments and photos are offered by regional tackle shops and area anglers, compiled and published twice a month. The NW PA Fishing Report is based on experiences, obser-vations and opinions of individual contributors; information sources are considered relia-ble but comments are not independently verified. In providing information or pictures, you are agreeing to your comments being edited, and posted to websites and distributed electronically.
