Full Report: Berks County: The Tulpehocken Creek (Delayed Harvest-Artificial Lures Only Area) continues to be a good choice for trout into the beginning of summer. Nice browns and rainbows provided plenty of action over the weekend, with picture perfect weather and stream conditions. The caddis was hot, and the best stretch to fish was downstream of the paper mill. So “tie up”, and get into some good fishing!

Bass were striking hard at Blue Marsh Lake, with anglers hooking up on topwater lures, spinner baits, and plastics worked deep. Many boats were fishing the no-wake arms to avoid the heavy boat traffic on the main lake. Good size crappies were hitting minnows and jigs near structure, and liver remains the preferred bait for catfish. Fish near dusk or into the night for the best chance at a lunker cat.

Bass season is underway and anglers are reporting some success at Blue Marsh Lake and other area waters.

Full Report: Berks County: Fly-fishing has been productive in the Special Regulations Area of the Tulpehocken Creek.

Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout are actively feeding mornings and evenings, and recent creek conditions have been great. Do not overlook the lower section below the Red Covered bridge, nice fly water and it is holding many fish.

It was a good weekend for fishing on Blue Marsh Lake. Two big Muskellunge caught and released on crank baits (one fish measuring 45 inches), nice Walleye and a few good size bass caught on plastics.

The PA Bass Opener is coming up on June 14. Good luck!

Full Report: Berks County: Nice weekend at Blue Marsh Lake last week with reduced boat traffic because of the fall like temperatures.

Channel Catfish were striking hard on liver and worms at the PFBC Sheidy Access near Bernville, and in the Tulpehocken arm of the lake. Good size crappies were taken on live minnows fished over downed trees in the Mt. Pleasant area (minimum size 9 inches/20 crappie per day permitted). Bass fishing was a little slow, but it looks good for the opener on June 14.

Full Report: Berks County: Trout stocking continues in Berks County with two sections of the Tulpehocken Creek scheduled for April 25. The first section is in the western end of Berks County from Marion Township Rod and Gun Club downstream to Charming Forge. The creek flows through scenic farmland, and it is perfect for bait or spinner fishing. The other stocked section is downstream of the Red Covered Bridge near Penn State to Reading. Bait fishing is permitted in this section, the stream is very wide and well suited for fly fishing.

Trout fishing throughout the county has been very good. The creeks have cleared after the recent rainstorm, and many areas have been stocked since last week. Hot baits include live minnows, worms, and yellow bait pastes. Spinners are always productive, and try using white colored soft plastic jigs.

The weather has been great, so get out and do some fishing! Dont forget, Mentored Youth Fishing Day has been rescheduled statewide to May 10 on select waters, which includes Scotts Run Lake and Antietam Lake in Berks County.

Good luck!

Full Report: Berks County: Good size crowds greeted the 2014 trout opener in Berks County, with many anglers catching their limit, or just choosing to catch and release. Trout were hitting on a variety of baits and lures, including worms, corn, minnows, wax worms, spinners, and a rainbow of colors of bait pastes

A few lucky anglers landed large trophy size trout, making great first day photos and fish stories to tell in years to come. The rain began late morning, thinning down the crowd, but fishing remained good throughout the day.

If you forgot your raincoat on Sunday, you are probably still wet!

Heavy rains caused muddy creek conditions, and chilly winds made the fishing a little tough.

Larger blade spinners were a good choice, worked low and slow. The creeks are still holding many fish, and conditions should improve by mid-week. Try Scotts Run Lake to pick up some nice brookies and browns

Full Report: Berks County: The perfect getaway, from all that shopping and hanging lights, is a day out fishing! Kaercher Creek Lake is scheduled to be stocked with trout on Dec. 10. Scott's Run Lake is another good choice for trout, as they were recently stocked and the browns are hitting.

Lake Ontelaunee continues to be good for crappie along Route 73 with small jigs and minnows working best.

Full Report: Berks County: The cooler winds of November always bring on good crappie fishing, and Lake Ontelaunee and Blue Marsh Lake are good choices to hook up.

Bright colored jigs and live minnows have been producing some nice fish at both locations.

Try the shoreline along Route 73 at Lake Ontelaunee, and fish structure and downed trees at Blue Marsh Lake. A reminder that at Blue Marsh Lake the legal size for crappie is 9 inches with a 20 fish limit per day.

Trout fishing action continues at the Tulpehocken Creek downstream of Blue Marsh, and at Scott's Run Lake, which were both stocked last month.

Full Report: Berks County: Now that we are finally into some fall like weather, nothing beats a good day out casting a line on a favorite waterway.

A couple areas to try include Tulpehocken Creek,Lake Ontelaunee, and Blue Marsh Lake.

The Tulpehocken Creek (downstream of Blue Marsh) was stocked on Oct. 3 with some nice Rainbow Trout, and is still holding plenty of fish. The creek gives you the opportunity to fish with lures and flies upstream of the Red Covered bridge in the Delayed Harvest Artificial Lures Only Area (catch and release), or fish downstream of the Red Covered Bridge using bait with a daily limit of three trout (Gring's Mill near Penn State has been a hot spot).

Trout stocking continues with Scott's Run Lake scheduled for Oct. 31 (mark it on the calendar).

Local anglers of Lake Ontelaunee in Berks County are reporting great success catching pan fish out of the Rte. 73 Quarry Hole. With the temperatures getting lower and the days shorter, the best fishing is first thing in the morning. Try using plastic grubs on jig heads down deep in the Quarry Hole to entice the numerous panfish out of the depths. Good luck and happy fishing.

Full Report: Berks County: With a fall chill in the air, trout stocking begins again with Scott's Run Lake on Oct. 1 and the Tulpehocken Creek downstream of Blue Marsh Lake on Oct. 3.

A reminder that it is the Extended Trout Season and the limit is three (3) trout, except in the Delayed Harvest Artificial Lures Only section of the Tulpehocken Creek (1st deflector below the Blue Marsh Stilling Basin to the Red Covered bridge) where catch and release is permitted only.

Fall is a great time for trout fishing, grab the rod and come on out! Crappie fishing has really picked up, nice size fish are being taken on live minnows at Blue Marsh Lake, and Lake Ontelaunee is another good choice to hook up.

If you enjoy bass fishing on smaller lakes, give Kaercher Creek Lake in Hamburg a try. Good reports coming off the lake and you may hook into a striper or musky.

With the summer coming to an end and fall upon us, it is time to get outdoors and enjoy the cooler temperatures. Deep Creek Lake in Montgomery County is a great place for kids to enjoy a great day of fishing in the outdoors. Deep Creek Lake, which is stocked seasonally with Trout by the PFBC, also sustains a great Largemouth Bass population as well as plenty of panfish to keep the little ones attention. The parks main entrance offers plenty of parking, facilities, playgrounds and access to all the hiking and biking trails.
