Pohopoco Creek: Although most of the approved trout waters have been receiving little to no fishing pressure, anglers fishing the Pohopoco Creek have been reporting good results catching trout in recent weeks. The most successful anglers have been on the water during the early morning or evening hours.
Lehigh River: Anglers have also reported doing well catching smallmouth bass and trout on the Lehigh River from Weissport to the Bowmanstown Pool area of the river. Spinners and stick bait type lures appeared to work the best. Night time fishing activities have been providing good catfish and eel action.
Mauch Chuck Lake: Bass action still remains good at Mauch Chunk Lake. Boat anglers have been reporting catching nice size perch and crappies as well. Jigs tipped with a minnow appeared to work the best.
Beltzville Lake: Anglers have had good bass action in the upper areas of the Preachers Camp boat access. Striped bass action has been good in the early morning or evening hours near the Pine Run boat access and the upper reaches of the Preachers Camp boat access. A number of anglers fishing chicken livers have reported good results catching striped bass and catfish.

Western Bradford & Sullivan County
Susquehanna River: Anglers have been successful targeting bass on the upper reaches of the Susquehanna River. Green plastics on jig heads are consistently catching bass and should be the first choice of lure for anglers searching for bass.
Northern Wayne County
Northern Wayne County has fishing has exploded! Reports of huge largemouth bass in the early morning hours have been received from various areas of the district. Rubber worms, top water lures and large live bait have been the baits of choice. Channel catfish are becoming very active in the area rivers as well. Chicken livers and hotdogs have been enticing some rather large channel cats into a feeding frenzy.
Miller Pond: The panfish are active at Miller Pond, a simple bobber and worm will do the trick most anytime of the day or night.
Delaware River: The smallmouth bass fishing is “HOT” on the Upper Delaware River. Small spinners and clippers are proving some incredible action.
Private community lakes have seen a huge increase in boating this past weekend. Most boats enjoying the great weather were unpowered vessels. Unfortunately, most did not have the required life jackets for their passengers. Remember, you need one wearable life jacket for each person on board and children under the age of 13 must wear while underway.
