Pine Creek, Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Pine Creek's water temperature is in the 50s every day and recent rains have the flow inching up very slightly. However, make no mistake, the watershed remains distressed and much more steady rain is needed to bring it back. That said, fly anglers are catching some surviving brown trout, as well as smallmouth and fall fish. The Brown Trout Club hopes to stock this fall whenever the average water flow improves over a longer period of time. The Slate Run Tackle Shop and Wolfe's General Store are open for business. Hours at 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday thru Friday, and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The Deli closes at 4 p.m. each day.
