Slate Run (Tioga County) – Good flow but gin clear water without
leaf over cover was reported on Slate Run in late April. One angler
fished half a day and only saw just two fish, because they were
very wary. Cedar Run was difficult to access as a result of a
forest fire that closed several roads. For more, call McConnell’s
