If you are looking for great winter trout fishing, Cowans Gap Lake was stocked on November 7th. Just a reminder that the daily limit is 3 trout.
All seasons, sizes and creel limits on Sheppard-Myers Reservoir have been temporarily lifted for anglers to utilize the fish before the lake is drained in the spring of 2020. A valid fishing license is still required. The lake is being drained to allow repairs to the dam and spillway. Please be aware that stocking of the reservoir will be suspended from 2020-2022.
Anglers are having success on the Yellow Breeches and enjoying the winter weather.

Walleye in the 17" to 24" range are being caught at the Red Hill and Dock Street Dams. Live minnows and jigs are working best.
Bailey's Grove has a new access point for fishermen to access Clark's Creek, approximately 1.5 miles east of the SR225, SR 325 intersections.
The fall fishing action is heating up for Channel and Flathead Catfish. Worms, chicken livers and small baitfish are the most popular for catching Channel and Flathead Catfish.
Walleye fishing is also becoming productive with water temps cooling off. Jigs with minnows or twister tails of bright colors are working well.
Muddy Creek's CATCH AND RELEASE FLY-FISHING ONLY section was stocked in early October.
Lake Trout are being caught in the Seven Points area of the Raystown Lake. Successful anglers are trolling spoons just over top of the standing timber at various depths. Daily limit on Lake Trout is currently 3 per day and at least 7 inches in length. A valid trout/salmon permit is required if an angler intends to harvest and possess Lake Trout.
