Full Report: Berks County: There were many ice fishing opportunities over the past week for some happy anglers.

Live minnows and small jigs were the preferred bait. Trout are hitting at Kaercher Creek Lake in Hamburg and at Scotts Run Lake in French Creek State Park. Tip a small jig with a meal worm, wax worm, or minnow to increase your chances at success. Bass and crappie fishing at Lake Ontelaunee has been great, with many bass taken on large minnows. The upper coves at Blue Marsh Lake are another good area for big crappies or a nice striper. Anglers at Middle Creek Lake in Lancaster County were putting some bass and catfish on the ice (remember to fish inside the line of buoys). Remember safety first, wear a float coat or life jacket, a good pair of cleats, and always check the ice conditions before heading out.

Full Report: Berks County: Ice fishing at Kaercher Creek Dam in Berks County has produced some bass and bluegills; however, the last two weeks were slow.

For some great winter trout ice-fishing opportunities, try Antietam Lake. Antietam Lake is stocked seasonally with trout by the PFBC. Remember to always let someone know where you are going ice fishing and how long you plan to be out. Good Luck and Happy Fishing!

Full Report: Berks County: Local anglers at Lake Ontelaunee in Berks County are catching panfish out of the Rte. 73 Quarry Hole. With the temperatures dropping and less daylight, the best fishing is first thing in the morning. Try using plastic grubs on jig heads down deep in the Quarry Hole to entice panfish out of the depths. Good luck and happy fishing!

Much needed rainfall has picked up the fishing in the area. The recently stocked Scotts Run Lake and the Tulpehocken Creek downstream of Blue Marsh are great spots for trout. Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout are hitting spinners and a variety of bait, and the Tulpehocken Creek is a prime location for fly-fishing. Please pay close attention to posted special regulations on the Tulpehocken Creek below the Blue Marsh Stilling Basin to the Red Covered Bridge. No bait is permitted and all fish must be released (Delayed Harvest-Artificial Lures Only Area). Good luck!

Fishing at Blue Marsh Lake has been good for both striper and bass. The lake has been gradually releasing water, so be careful while boating and reduce speed where necessary.

Full Report: Berks County: The bass are striking over at Lake Ontelaunee in Berks County. With the recent rain and lower humidity, bass are starting to come out of the depths and feed. Try working plastic worms and or crank baits through the lily pads. In the middle of the day, try fishing in the depths of the quarry hole off Rte. 73. ….. Good Luck!

South Berks County - It was a good weekend at Blue Marsh Lake with many anglers finding success targeting bass, crappie, and catfish. Prime spots include the deep water toward the dam breast and the shoal buoy near the island, which is a great place for stripers. Both areas are tough to fish when the lake is full of boats, but it is worth the wakes if you are picking up fish. An overlooked fishing area is the section of the Tulpehocken arm near Bernville. Launch out of the PFBC Sheidy Access, and head to the right (the entire arm is a no-wake zone). This area has limited boat traffic with plenty of coves and structure that should put fish on the stringer. The access is a great spot to fish from shore, especially for catfish, set up behind the bulletin boards near the boat launch. A reminder that all boats must be registered or have a current launch permit (non-powered boats) to use the PFBC Sheidy Access. Other less traveled fishing areas are the upper section of the Spring Creek arm, and the narrow channel above the bridge at Mt. Pleasant, which are both no-wake zones. Maps are available at the Ranger station, and the lake is open 24/7 for fishing and boating.

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!
