North Central Pennsylvania Fishing Report – November 7th, 2014

Spring Creek (Centre County) — As of Oct. 21, conditions were excellent, as water was in the 60s and had some color, reported TCO Fly Shop. Cahills and caddis were providing dry-fly action in the afternoons and evenings, but nymphing was generally the better bet. Ants and beetles were still productive top-water patterns, despite the cooler temperatures. Hatches included tan caddis (14-16), midges (22-26), and little blue-winged olives (18-20).

Hills Creek Lake (Tioga County) — Bass and chain pickerel were hitting live shiners, crankbaits, and plastic worms, with natural colors the best bet.  Crappies were reported on small plastic worms fished off a lightweight jighead, or minnows.

Tioga Lake spillway (Tioga County) — Walleyes were reported on shiners and nightcrawlers along the bottom.

Cowanesque Lake (Tioga County) — Largemouth bass were reported on live shiners, jigs, jerkbaits and crankbaits in recent weeks, with some fish weighing 6-plus pounds. One 7-plus-pounder was reportedly caught. Bass were moving shallow as weather cooled in recent weeks, and nice catches were coming in the west end of the lake around logs and other structure.

Hamilton Lake (Tioga County) — Recently stocked trout were reported on mealworms, waxworms, and dough baits under bobbers. Crappies, yellow perch and bluegills were hitting live minnows and crawlers. 

Hammond Lake (Tioga County) — Nice-size crappies and bluegills were hitting along shorelines, with schools of crappies around shore structure. Crappies were hitting jigs and live minnows, small plastic worms, or small tubes, with chartreuse and white the productive colors. Numbers of bass were reported on jerkbaits and crankbaits in natural colors.

Little Pine Lake (Lycoming County) — Bluegills were reported on butter worms and chunks of nightcrawlers. Numbers of recently stocked trout were hitting. 

Pine Creek (Lycoming County) — The delayed-harvest stretch was yielding trout on small jerkbaits in minnow and trout colors, or spinners in silver, white or yellow.  Smallmouth bass and the occasional chain pickerel were re­ported. Near Slate Run, rainbow and brown trout were reported on Picket Pin flies as October caddis were hatching.

Northfork of Redbank Creek (Jefferson County) — Numbers of trout were hitting Slate Drakes, small Midges, and Purple Haze dry flies, as well as olive or white Wooly Buggers stripped from the banks in the early morning hours.
