January 17, 2018

Juniata County
There is no fishing or boating activity on the Juniata River due to high water and ice jam conditions.
Perry County
Ice fisherman are catching fish on small ponds and lakes.  Panfish are hitting small ice fishing jigs tipped with wax worms, maggots or mealworms. 
Cumberland County
Cold temperatures and light snow make an enjoyable afternoon for anglers who like to have the whole stream to themselves.  Yellow Breeches Creek continues to hold trout year-round, and the Catch and Release Special Regulation Area in Boiling Springs continues to get solid angling pressure.  Anglers are reminded that no bait may be used or possessed in the Special Regulation Area at Boiling Springs
Lebanon County
Live minnows are working well through the ice at Memorial Lake State Park. Anglers report catching crappie & bluegill.


January 10, 2018

Perry County

Anglers are ice fishing on Holman Lake and catching nice fish. 
Huntingdon County
Ice conditions vary on Raystown Lake.  Ice anglers report catching perch and crappie using fathead minnows on tip-ups.  There is still plenty of open water, so ice anglers should use extreme caution if venturing out onto the ice.  Drill plenty of test holes, fish with a buddy and wear a Personal Flotation Device.  The only accessible boat launch as of the date of this report is the Seven Points Public Launch.

The entire southern end of the lake is iced in, as seen from this picture taken from Weaver Falls looking downriver. 
York County
Anglers are catching panfish through the ice at Gifford Pinchot Lake.
