Pine Creek, Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
A cooling trend had provided a reprieve of sorts this week for fishing Pine Creek. Cool overnight air temperatures brought water temps down in the mornings to the low 60s. However, as the sun reached its daily apex, water temperatures rose to dangerous levels by early afternoons. This pattern will continue for the coming week. Anglers should focus more on smallmouth bass fishing using poppers or crawfish patterns. 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.
