Folks were taking advantage of the relatively mild November weather to fish Stairway Lake (aka Auburn Dam or Landingville Dam) and Blue Marsh Lake. Some success was reported with perch and bass at Auburn and crappie at Blue Marsh.
Boaters are reminded that we are in the Cold Weather Life Jacket wear months. All persons on all boats less than 16 feet in length and all canoes and kayaks are required to be wearing a Type I, II, III or V personal flotation device at all times while on the water. For boats 16 feet or more in length, it is not required but is still a good idea, and it is a good idea for any angler who ventures out on the ice to fish in the winter. Sudden immersion in cold water plays a significant role in many fatal boating accidents.

It was a picture perfect fall day in Berks County on Thursday, November 14 for the fall stocking of Lake Antietam. The weather was great, the fish looked great, and the water was perfect. Deep Creek Lake in Montgomery County also was stocked from the same truck. The trout came from Huntsdale Hatchery and could not have looked better, so grab your rods and get there and enjoy some wonderful winter trout fishing. Keep in mind we are in the extended trout season with the daily creel limit of three (3) trout.

The Yardley Access is an untapped resource for Delaware River fishing. Yes, many people launch boats from there, but it is also a great place to cast a line from shore.
You cannot beat a fall day on the Delaware River to see what the area has to offer. Fall is one of the best times to float the river, as the change of colors in the fall foliage can be breathtaking. Remember from Nov 1 to April 30 anyone in a boat under 16’ and all kayaks and canoes are required to wear a life jacket. Waterproof spray jackets and other insulating clothing, such as wet suits, are recommended when boating in cold weather. So get out there and be safe.
Lake Luxembourg was just stocked with trout on 11/13/13. Anyone that wants a day of fishing fun should grab a fishing rod, get to Core Creek County Park in scenic Bucks County, and catch one of those big ones. Levittown Lake was also stocked with trout this fall.
