me and my dad live fairly close to French creek and of all the years my dad has been living here he has never fished in French creek. if any body would be able to point us in the general direction in French creek for walleye we would gladly appreciate it. we are not asking for your honey holes but we are looking for general areas. also, if you could give us any tips on the type of tackle that you would use while fishing for walleye in French creek, we could gladly appreciated. Thank You

White twister tails, small creek chubs, and raps. Stay away from nightcrawlers or youll be left with a mess of catfish and bowfin!

Yes, original floaters, size 13, black silver, blue silver, gold silver all good colors. Also husky jerks size 12 and 10. Dont overlook rattle traps either, they produce well.

Spring and fall. Water gets pretty warm in the summer but they're still in there so they CAN bite, they just prefer cooler water temps, you're better off fishing from last light until dawn in the summer.

Hit the Coneaught Outlet just oposite of the Gravel Pit Road off 322. That's where we used to go for them 40+ years ago. I went there the year before last, drove there from Cheser County, in an attempt to recapture some of my youth. I did, and it was great. The sunset itself was worth the trip.

One of my best walleye fishing days on "The Crick" was in August a few years back. Went and caught a limit like it was no big deal then went over to the big Cochranton fair and got a hot sausage then went back and caught even more! What a night!
