Blair/Huntingdon Counties-
Canoe Creek Lake: Panfish and pickerel are beginning to pick up with the warmer weather. Anglers have also been finding success with some decent sized catfish in the higher, muddy waters the past few weeks. Worms and small minnows have been producing.

Little Juniata River: Anglers are reporting good catch rates when the weather cooperates. Small nymph patterns have been producing throughout the day. Keep an eye out for any hatches for the opportunity to throw some dry flies!

Lebanon/Southern Dauphin Counties-
Area streams are producing some good trout when using live bait.  Try fishing the Tulpehocken, Quittapahilla, and Snitz Creeks, as well as Marquette Lake.

Perry/Juniata Counties-
In-season stocking is officially over. The recently stocked Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout are hitting smaller jigs at Shermans Creek and red worms at Cocolamus Creek.

Smallmouth Bass are hitting swim jigs early in the morning on the Juniata River.

Franklin/Eastern Fulton Counties-
STOCKING SCHEDULE CHANGE: Due to the heavy rains on May 7, the West Branch of the Conococheague Creek from Amberson to Fort Loudon will now be stocked on Saturday, May 14, same meeting location (Milky Way) and same time (10:30AM).

Waterways Conservation Officer (WCO) Wirick would like to thank his stocking helpers, especially John Miller, John Gates, and Bob Molnar, who assisted him with this year's stocking efforts.  Their hard work of stocking fish was vital in the overall success of the agency's mission. These men truly are an inspiration, and the stockings in Franklin and Fulton Counties could not have been done without their dedication to the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. Thank you, gentlemen! Great Job!
