Kettle Creek smallmouth
I was up to camp along Kettle Creek in Potter County from last Thursday through this past Tuesday. I had been catching a lot of trout on the stream through mid-July, and decided to try for some August trout hook-ups, which I have never had due to warm water. But I was seeing trout in the pools, so I gave it a try. I didn't catch any trout, but I did tie into some nice hard-fighting smallmouth -- which are always in the stream, and feeding heavily, in August. So if you want some fun, cast your line to summertime smallmouth on the trout streams. I think the bass migrate upstream from Kettle Creek Dam in the summer.
