Northcentral Region

Spring Creek (Centre County) – This popular stream, which
includes Fisherman’s Paradise, was fishable around Christmas when
others in the region were not. As a limestoner, it offers
relatively stable flow and temperatures most of the year.

Cowanesque Lake (Tioga County) – The west side was freezing just
before Christmas.

Cowanesque River (Tioga County) – This stocked water was still
yielding the occasional trout in late December.

Fishing Creek (Clinton County) – Typical winter fishing was
reported around Christmas. This and other limestone streams fish
better than freestoners at this time of year because water levels
and temperatures remain more stable. Nymphs, woolly buggers and
streamers fished low and slow was the ticket to average-sized
trout, 10 to 14 inches.

Pine Creek (Lycoming County) – Ice floats and slush rendered
this stream practically unfishable in late December.
