Van Tassel’s Timberland Bait has reported catches of smallmouth bass and northern pike at Union City Dam. Anglers have also reported largemouth bass, northern pike and walleye are extremely aggressive at Canadohta Lake, and walleyes are being caught at Woodcock Dam after dark as well.
John’s Bait has reported good fishing at nearly all locations around the area. Walleye, musky and pike are being caught at the spillway at Woodcock, and walleye are being caught in the lake around 15 to 31 feet down. Tamarack has been producing typical amounts of musky and panfish. French Creek has also been steady with bass, walleye and catfish, with one channel catfish reportedly caught this past week around 20 inches in length. Crappie, walleye and bluegill are biting on Lake Wilhelm as well.
Oil Creek Outfitters was pleased to report that since the water on Oil Creek has dropped down and cleared up, fishing has gone very well in the early morning and late evening. There is an abundant hatch of light cahills and blue-winged olives on the water on a daily basis.
