We had some rain in the Oley Valley the past two days, more than two inches. Good news. The Mannny hit 80 degrees earlier this week. It now back down in the low 70's. The springs received a good charge of water, and everything back to normal. Still too warm to fish for trout. More rain is forecasted tonight (thunderstorms). It's a start. In central PA, Spring Creek is running at a normal level. The rain is spotty everywhere because they are thunderstorms. I would check the water level and temperatures before fishing for trout anywhere. 

August is coming, and it is SMALLMOUTH time. Brian has a few dates open on the lower Juniata and Susquehanna. Dave Allbaugh has dates open on the upper Juniata (Huntington area).  Bill Nolan is available for smallmouth on the Lehigh River. Trout fishing has shut down on the Lehigh until fall. 


Pohopoco, some hatches around. Tulpehocken is at a good level. Temperatures (dam release) are not dropping below 68 degrees, time to let them rest. Manny, too warm. Fish the lower tully with a popper and catch some Sunfish and Smallmouth. They are in there.

Central PA

Spring Creek is the best choice in the State College area. Water levels good, and so are the water temps. 


All three have good smallmouth fishing right now. White poppers are working really good. Top water is fun...

Brian has the following dates available on the Lower Juniata and Susquehanna. 

Aug 14th, 28 th
Sept 11th, 18th, 25th, 26th

Yes, there are nice smallmouth in the upper Juniata River. Dave Allbaugh has a new raft to handle the upper Junita. We have started offering a Trout/Bass packaged trips in the fall. Spend one day on the raft for smallmouth, and one day walk and wade on the Little J for trout. 

You can reach Dave by calling 814-322-4755 or email.
