Headed to Paint Creek camping for the weekend this afternoon. Never been there before. I'm assuming channels can be had about anytime. How about crappie this time of year. Will have the boat. Any hints?

Also, hows the cell coverage there? My daughter is doing on-line school and will probably need some internet access to get her work done tomorrow.

Thanks in advance.

I haven't been on Paint Creek for a while, I usually go on up to rocky fork. I think it's all slow now. You should still be able to hit some crappies. There's plenty of timber and brush in the water in area and some nice rock ledges. There's good crappie areas around the camp ground. As for cell, I can tell you AT&t is good for me on the lake. I think sprint is spotty....don't know others.

I haven't been there in a while but you should be able to get into some crappie. Watch you electronics. Find the shad and you'll find the crappie.
I have Verizon and cell service is mediocre at best. My friend has AT&T and its a little worse.
Good luck and let us know how it goes.

I was there at the end of july for a week. The crappie fishing was horrible. I have been going to paint creek for the last four summers and every year the crappie fishing gets worse. I was catching some bass around the beach area. And you can always catch some nice catfish without. to much trouble. They were working in the campground on some of the sites
and laying some line. I don't know how long the work is scheduled for. Enjoy, it is a nice state park.
