Wayne County

The fishing at Lake Wallenpaupack has really cooled off in the past week.  Anglers were doing great catching Striped Bass, Channel Catfish and Largemouth Bass but over the past week the fish have not cooperated.  Boating activity on Lake Wallenpaupack has been weather dependent all year. Many boaters have been anchoring and spending the afternoon's in Mangan Cove, Martin's Cove and behind Carin's Island.

Western Bradford & Sullivan Counties

The latest round of storms impacting the North Branch of the Susquehanna River did not deter kayakers who were looking to get their last paddle in before school is back in session. Water levels are normal and color is starting to clear.

Anglers targeting bass at Sunfish Pond found success with rubber worms in the "motor oil" color.  Cooler water temperatures have fish a bit more active in the region.






Southern Wayne and Pike Counties

Recent cooler nights have brought on a resurgence of feeding activity in smaller impoundments, especially Black Crappie. Anglers report having exceptional fishing experience as of late using small, brightly colored jigs in the dark, tannic waters of the region.
