Southwest Region

Allegheny River – Water was high Aug. 14, a result of heavy rainfall upriver and voluminous releases from the Kinzua Dam. Average catches of bass, walleyes and catfish were reported earlier that same week. The Venture Outdoors Downtown TriAnglers reported 31 anglers released 14 fish off the North Shore Aug. 12, including a 25-inch carp

Outlook bright for bow season

Lansing – Across the state, bowhunters can generally expect to find higher numbers of antlered deer than last year. According to DNR biologist Brian Frawley, there was a 7-percent decrease in the total number of antlered deer killed by hunters in 2008. That means a few more bucks likely made it through to this season.
