Striped bass fishing is starting to kick off again now that the ice on Lake Wallenpaupack has melted off. Decker Brook, Lackawaxen River, Shohola Creek, and Masthope Creek have all been stocked with trout and are ready for opening day of trout season.
Lily Pond was a popular spot for Mentor Youth Day with a lot of kids catching their limits from the shoreline even in the snow and hail. One dad, on the Lackawaxen River, was grateful for an experienced fly-fisherman, who he had just met on the river, who took some time out of his day to teach him and his son techniques for fly fishing which they were trying out for the first time.
