Fishing report: Conemaugh River Lake becomes hot spot for walleye

Kevin Lohman

• Conemaugh River Lake is a fruitful spot to visit for anglers who are on the lookout for walleye, as plenty of the fish are being caught in the vicinity of the rocks on the far side of the lake. Most anglers are seeing good results using minnows as bait. Additionally, there are catches of panfish, perch, crappie and bass being reported at the lake, which is one of the hotter spots in the area of late.

• For fishermen who are in search of trout, Mammoth Lake is scheduled to receive a trout stocking this week. Setups that include spoons, jigs or crankbaits should provide anglers with a recipe for success.

• Quemahoning Reservoir is producing smallmouth bass and pike for anglers fishing its waters. Water levels are low at the reservoir recently, which has made boat fishing difficult.

• The Monongahela River in Washington County is offering up a large number of flathead catfish. Anglers who are using cut bait to entice the catfish are seeing a fair deal of success.

• The Lower Clarion River is still harboring solid amounts of walleye and smallmouth bass, as anglers are enjoying a good deal of action near the point where the river converges with the Allegheny River.

• At Kahle Lake, anglers are doing well with largemouth bass. The lake has even produced a few panfish catches in recent days, too.

• The catfish bite is still going strong at Lake Arthur, with chicken livers and night crawlers producing plenty of bites as bait. Some yellow perch catches are being reported as well.

• Anglers fishing the Tionesta Outflow are reporting a number of walleye catches. The muskellunge bite is slowing down a bit, but there have still been a few muskie catches reported in recent days.
