Deer Lakes and the Delayed Harvest Artificial Lures Only (DHALO) section of Deer Creek received their final stocking of trout for this year.
Bass are being caught on the Allegheny River.
Greene County and Southern Washington County
Water temperatures in the Monongahela River are dipping into the low 70’s and shad are running the tributaries.
Walleye are biting in Ten Mile Creek and Dunkard Creek on large minnows and artificial soft plastics swimbaits.
White Bass have been feeding well near the outfalls of locks and dams in the area. Anglers report small minnows and shallow diving crankbaits working well.
Northern Westmoreland County
Fall trout stocking has come once again to Westmoreland County. Indian Lake, Mammoth Lake, Donegal Lake, Keystone Lake, Twin Lakes (upper & lower), and Loyalhanna Creek’s Delayed Harvest Artificial Lures Only (DHALO) section have all been freshly stocked.
The majority of the first stocked were Brown Trout this year. The fish had some good size to them and everyone that participated seemed to be happy with the size and numbers of the stockings.
Loyalhanna Creek got some beautifully colored Rainbow Trout.
Anglers fishing Loyalhanna Creek and Donegal Lake said they had great success immediately after the stocking. Angling success at the rest of the lakes has not been as great as those two destinations.
As we move forward into the fall, the forecast shows some cool temperatures and rain so lakes temperatures will steadily drop which should lead to these fish being caught at all locations.
