Anglers are currently having success fishing for Trout in Bald Eagle Creek, Six Mile Run, Cold Stream, Cold Stream Dam, Black Moshannon Creek, Penns Creek, Sinking Creek, Poe Valley, Poe Valley Lake, Marsh Creek, and Little Fishing Creek. Anglers are using a variety of tactics to include spinners, minnows, waxworms, and power bait.
Sayers Lake - Anglers are reporting catches of Yellow Perch using redworms floated under a bobber. Additionally, some anglers are having success targeting Crappies. Most of the success is coming from anglers using 2-inch rubber twisters or live minnows with a float.
Anglers are out in abundance taking advantage of the recently stocked lakes and streams. Lots of happy kids catching some nice trout! There are some boats out on Cloe Lake taking advantage of the nice weather. Remember that mandatory wear is still in place until April 30th!

Spring Creek – Currently, the water temperature is in the low 40's. The creek is currently in great shape. Blue-winged olives are making an appearance on warmer days and some anglers are taking advantage of this. The dry fly fishing has been great recently. When nymphing, try something with a hot spot. The bright colors are often enough to trigger a take in cold conditions. Hot spot sow bugs are a great option to try right now. With warm weather on the horizon, be on the lookout for grannoms in the coming weeks!
Hills Creek Lake – Spring is here, and the ice is now out on the lakes throughout Tioga county. Anglers have been finding some nice Yellow Perch throughout the lake. It is currently a great time to get out your fishing gear and ensure everything is good to go. Increasing water temperatures in the coming weeks will have some fish moving up shallow in preparation for the spawn.
A successful Mentored Youth Day on Chest Creek! Bob Thomas and his grandkids had a great experience fishing on the MYD this year. Great job!
