'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

• The Yough River near Smithton is a little off color from the rain, but anglers were picking up smallmouth bass on minnows and nightcrawlers. A few trout were reported caught this week, both around Smithton and between Connellsville and Ohiopyle.

• On the Ohio River, anglers are picking up some flathead catfish, though none of especially large size, according to a Fish and Boat Commission report. Cutbait and nightcrawlers were reportedly taking the fish.

• The fishing at Lake Somerset is slow, with catfish anglers relegated to taking mostly bullheads at dusk.

• At Raccoon Lake, anglers are picking up some trout by fishing deep water with Powerbait, according to one report.

• Lake Arthur anglers able to battle heavy weeds are picking up largemouth bass and bluegills, but the fishing is slow overall.

• On the Beaver River, small to medium-sized hybrid stripers are hitting around the Townsend Dam, according to a Fish and Boat Commission report. Smallmouth bass are hitting tubes and shiners.

• Bradys Run Lake is giving up trout.

• At Yellow Creek Lake, anglers are picking up some smallmouth bass by focusing on deeper water. Small panfish are active, too.

• Anglers fishing Dunlap Creek Lake near the dam are getting trout after dark. Bluegills also are hitting.

• Glendale Lake anglers are getting northern pike and bass by fishing with shiners and nightcrawlers, respectively.

• At Lake Oneida, bass are hitting, with nightcrawlers and soft plastics accounting for most of the fish.
