Raystown Lake (Huntingdon County) – The striper bite picked up
mornings and evenings on live bait from the surface to 18 feet deep
in mid-June, when water was in the mid-70-degree range and
off-color at times. Anglers were catching lake trout, 5 to 14
pounds, drifting live bait or trolling chartreuse spoons on
downriggers in 35 to 45 feet. Anglers were catching largemouth bass
jigging weighted soft plastics in weedbeds, or working surface
lures over the weedbeds. Smallmouths were hitting around deeper
scattered weeds and off rock points. Water was 74 degrees.
Little Juniata River (Blair County) – Water was an ideal level
June 20. Cahills and slate drakes were the main hatches. Slate
drake nymphs are good swimmers, so strip them like streamers when
dead-drifting doesn’t work.
East Branch, Codurus Creek (York County) – A bonus trout
stocking with fish from the Lamar federal hatchery was performed
Susquehanna River (York County) – Catfish were hitting on
crawlers and chicken livers and bass on plugs and spinner baits in
recent weeks. Dry flies and beetle patterns were taking trout as
conditions allowed. Live minnows and crawlers in the deeper pools
Lake Williams (York County) – Crappies were hitting on small
poppers and bright-colored jigs in recent weeks.
Lake Redman (York County) – Anglers are advised that thousands
of 1-inch walleye fry and 3,000 striped hybrid bass were stocked
here in mid-June.
