11/20/2014 hello anglers,creeks are frozen but should be able to be broken pretty easily. 16 mile never freezes except down by the mouth but steelhead still come in. anglers are catching fish nice fresh ones probably in 16 mile because it's all the way open. please anglers do not walk down through the middle of the creek to see if there is fish in there. that just scares them and ruins other people's fishing. please be considerate of other anglers while in the streams there's enough fish for every one. the only frozen water i have heard of is lake plesant and bulls dam but please do not walk on it it's not safe yet. well this weekend is going to be nice and next week i believe. the streams will be a little high but they come down fast and lots of new fish in the creeks. the piers and border patrol are still fishable. fish being caught are perch,steelhead and some walleye. please don't forget small business saturday. we have a nice selection of tackle for all your anglers needs:) thank you for all your support:)happy fishing:)

Here are some pictures that have been on the camera for some time:
5-8-12 Got some great news to share today. Todd Young of Nazerth PA caught a new PA state record Lake Trout while fishing aboard Eyecon II fishing charter out of North East PA with Captain Scott Snyder. The fish was 39 inches long had a girth of 26 inches and the weight was 29.28 lbs. This was caught off the mountain. Hats off guys for a super great catch!
Anglers are NOT permitted to utilize the foot bridge at the dam in order to cross the stream at 4 Mile creek. Anglers must enter the stream from the footpath located on the stream's east side located between the Lawrence Park fishing club.(between the yellow ropes)
Please remember that the conditions can change from minute to minute or hour to hour. If we post a report that someone caught fish at some point in time or place, that they may have swam away by the time you get there or the conditions have changed & is no longer fishable, which does happen quite often.
