South Central Pennsylvania Fishing Report – January 31st, 2013
Yellow Breeches Creek (Cumberland County)
The catch- and-release stretch near Allenberry was yielding nice trout on Green Weenies and Scuds.
Clark Creek (Dauphin County)
Anglers were landing trout in the mostly ice-free areas in early to mid-January.
Susquehanna River (York County)
The lower river was producing catfish and walleyes around York Haven, with liver and shrimp the ticket for the catfish and jigs with a minnow or twister tail taking the walleyes.
Little Juniata River (Huntingdon County)
Snow melt had flow running high and off-color as of Jan. 16. Water was in the 40s. Large stonefly, caddis and streamer patterns were effective, as was stripping wooly buggers and fishing micro-nymphs under indicators. Trout were in the slower, deeper pools. Patterns of choice were zebra midges (18 to 22), Green Weenies (12-14), green Caddis larvae (14-18), Zuddlers (4-8), and Slump Busters (4-8).
Cowans Gap Lake (Fulton County)
A state trout stocking is slated for Feb. 6.
