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.
