musky in nepa and guides

Has there been a consensus as to the three or four best spots to fish for musky in northeast pa?

also are there any good reasonably priced guides in these areas?

Fisherman categorize fishing spots into two categories; "Popular" and "Best". Although you asked for "Best", I suspect you will get no responses, or more likely the "Popular" responses.

Unlikely you will get the "Best" on an online forum.

But good question and I wish you look!

Route 11 boatlaunch in west nanticoke is a good spot for musky. I get some there everywhere. Usually just walk up and down the shore line with a big spinner.

Re: musky in nepa and guides

Has anyone tried Kaercher Creek for musky? Is it good or popular? The PBFC rates it pretty good…It looks like they stocked it over the years with Muskies…

Re: musky in nepa and guides

If a water has been stocked long enough, and is currently still on the list, the PFBC has probably determined the fingerlings are surviving to adulthood, there is interest in the fishery, and there is a fishable population. Otherwise, the water likely would have been removed from the list.

Whether or not you will catch any fish there, and it will meet your own classification of good, only you can decide that. What I mean is, one group of experienced musky fishermen may fish a water body for the first time and not see a fish, while another group may fish it for the first time and catch 9. If they are experienced musky fishermen, neither group is likely to rate the water body based solely on that trip. They probably look at the weather conditions, moon phase, water temps, water clarity, time of year, what they saw on their electronics, what depths they focused on, whether they trolled or casted, and a number of other variables to help them evaluate the water, and why or why not they had success. Subsequent trips under various conditions, may lead them to consider the water body "a favorite," "fishable under good conditions" or "a dud." And even that report from someone else is only worth so much....I'm sure I have favorites that others might consider duds and vice versa.

Good luck in your quest! My recommendation would be if you haven't musky fished much, hook up with a guide, even if its on a different water....then take that experience closer to home.

There is always a season!
