Go over to FishUSA.com and check out the form for northwest Pa. They have been getting eyes, crappies, and perch there for the last couple of weeks. Suppose to rain and snow the next couple of days with temps in the 30's. Should make the crowds smaller.

Re: open water at Pymatuming

I went up Thursday night and waded the gravel bars. The bait shop was out of lge and XL minnows and only had mediums. We never got a bite on live bait. My buddy and I both missed one each on a rapala. Some guy fishing near us has some creek bait (red horse chubs and the like) about 2-3" long or bigger. He was killing them. If you're going to jig fish for them, try to find big minnows. I suggested to my buddy we get shiners when I found out they only had med minnows but he didn't get them.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Did pretty good wading last night. Jigs and minnows and rapalas. Tons of short fish also which is a good sign.

Re: open water at Pymatuming

Ive managed to fish 3 nights in the last week wading the gravel bars also tossing a floating Yozuri. Brought 4 eyes home each night with a couple of throwbacks. All males still milking. The largest was 20" they seem to average 16=18" with a lot of 12 to 14" thrown in. This is my best year yet doing this. Lots of fun from 7:30 PM till about 9:30.

Re: open water at Pymatuming

Wow, the fishing is good this year! Took my limit home this evening. The largest is 24" I had 3 throwbacks. Next year should be even better with this many 12-14" eyes I have released this week at Pymie.
