There have been delays in some of the ponds. Check the website for updates
When I was a kid a small marshmallow and 2 mealworms or corn was the ticket in PA. That was in ponds/ lakes... just corn in the creeks.If I told you how I caught 40+ Brookies in 2 hours in a 4’ wide creek walking around 10-15 Fisherman every 500 yards you’d throw rocks at me. I’ve posted up pics of natives and stockies caught. I do have a backpack case for a Spinner outfit for really wore patches. Cast masters and the pink trout magnets seem popular here in PA.
I like phoebe minnnows in NY. Kids run a million varieties of powerbaits. Locals buy from lure maker in a unique bead config.
Trout fishing definitely serious business here.
