Lycoming Creek

Lycoming Creek North of Williamsport PA

On the road with a few hours this evening to spare, I decided to hit a stream that I had only driven by prior to my visit. 

Downstream of where I began


Planning off of some web research, I narrowed things down to a section of the creek that looked promising. However, things were not quite as expected upon arrival. The water was extremely low, slow and a bit warm. In the end, I caught a handful of chubs and one small 6" Smallmouth. All fish were taken on a #14 Penns Grannom. The water was full of crayfish and ducks, but no trout were even spotted on the particular water I visited. Regardless, it was still far better than an afternoon in a hotel room. 


Beautiful water that I will have to research a bit further and revisit.
