John’s Bait has reported good fishing at nearly all locations around the area. Walleye, musky and pike are being caught at the spillway at Woodcock, and walleye are being caught in the lake around 15 to 31 feet down. Tamarack has been producing typical amounts of musky and panfish. French Creek has also been steady with bass, walleye and catfish, with one channel catfish reportedly caught this past week around 20 inches in length. Crappie, walleye and bluegill are biting on Lake Wilhelm as well.

TITUSVILLE

Oil Creek Outfitters was pleased to report that since the water on Oil Creek has dropped down and cleared up, fishing has gone very well in the early morning and late evening. There is an abundant hatch of light cahills and blue-winged olives on the water on a daily basis.

  • Here are outdoors news and activities notes for the week beginning Jan. 29

    The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission is encouraging anglers to vote online by Friday for their favorite color for a new series of fishing license buttons that will be available beginning in March.
    “The buttons for this first year will be in the color which receives the highest number of votes,” said PFBC Executive Director John Arway. “Brought back by popular demand, this custom button is similar to the buttons offered by the PFBC in the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, and again in 1974 and 1975.
    Each custom button will measure 1 3/4 inches (same as past, vintage buttons) with a high-quality pin-back design and feature the angler's customer identification number (CID), same as the number displayed on a paper license.
    Anglers need to display only the button when fishing, as long as they are carrying a valid paper license. Go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2014-PA-Fishing-License-Button to vote.

  • NOV 20 Hunting Works.JPG New business group out to spread word about economic impact and benefits of hunting

    I think that I’d be pretty safe in saying that hunting is a pretty popular pastime in Pennsylvania. Few people would dispute that. With nearly 1 million hunters heading afield each year in this state alone, it’s pretty easy to see a ripple effect between hunting expenditures and area economies.
