The only baitshop is Animalistic Outdoors on Pennsylvania Ave on the east end of Warren, right across from the refinery.

There's Paul's Trading Post on Rte 321 between Kane and the Kinzua Arm if you are coming in that way.

Is that the place that was Bob's trading post many years ago? Man I miss being up that way. That's a long way from Willow Bay I think. Isn't Willow bay on the east side of the reservoir just below the New York state line? btw, there are some nice walleyes and musky in that lake.

It's the place that used to be Graybill's Marine.

It is a ways from Willow (east side just south of NY. Yep). But if a fellow were coming up from Kane it would be an easy stop.

Re: willow bay at kinzua??

Yeah, I remember Graybill's too. You're right, if you were coming from Kane that would be a good option. We used to camp at Kiasutha or Red Bridge and had a little 12 foot aluminum boat with 7.5 HP Sears motor that sounded like a lawnmower, so Willow bay would have been a long trek for us by boat. I don't remember if we ever drove to Willow bay by truck.

I'd also think about the Chapel Bay area off the Kinzua arm of the lake as a spot to try. We fished that area a lot and caught some nice muskies there.

Re: willow bay at kinzua??

Yeah. funny how times change.

We always camped at Kiasutha when I was a kid. Had a big deep V Starcraft aluminum with an 18 HP Evinrude Fastwin ala 1957. When we left in the morning to go fishing it was for the day because it took so long just to get up to the rte 59 bridge. Now I launch at Kiasutha and the bridge is a couple of minutes........Willow Bay not much longer.

Funny, kinda.............

Slavens is just about a 1/2 mile up from the Willow Bay campground/boat launch. Best fishing, especially for walleyes in May in on the Indian reservation, which is also in NY. The NY line is just north of Willow Bay on the main lake.

Re: willow bay at kinzua??

I live 15-20 mins from Willow. Fishing was terrible all ice and so far all spring. All of Kinzua really. Slowest I remember. (No, im not joking).
