I know of a beavercreek off of Erie and I thought a smaller ran from the big lake already. This would be early for them by a few weeks.
Even more impressive knowing it is a resident. Love those smallies!
I've caught to bows just west of the boat ramp near the confluence with the river... they do travel for cold oxygenated water.Pa stocks the fork that runs through Darlington back to Ohio . Generally a lot of good fish, always a good time. I think It would be nice if Ohio would do it as well.I have fished the middle fork pretty much my whole life. I’ve caught one big rainbow and a medium size brown in there. Not so sure where they came from, maybe Pa but they would have to come back up from Fredrick town if that was the case.
