Pine Creek, Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Pine Creek had another shot of water, about six-tenths of an inch, the other day. Water flows are adequate and many rainbows and brown trout ply the waters inside, as well as up and downstream, of the 2.8-mile special regulation water that begins at the confluence with Slate Run. Hunting season in full swing, so be aware, wear some orange and stay in close proximity to the "river." 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.
