Pine Creek, Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Target Smallies! Slate and Cedar Run are getting low and snakey; still fishable but very challenging. The Small mouth can be picky on Pine, but once you find one, there's usually a lot more. Mess around with your sizes of streamers. The smaller you use, the more quantity. But if you use some articulated streamers, you'll eliminate those small fish and find the bigger fish!

Techniques & Tips

Fish in the tail waters of a run, if you find a deep slow pool you will find smallies cruising the bank side. They love to ambush their prey, so they like the creek bottom with a fair amount of structure.

7-Day Forecast

Some possible thunderstorms throughout the week, but nothing that looks promising. Some high sun days this week as well, which does not seem to slow the smallies down.
