Pine is returning to excellent shape this week, especailly in the special regulation area between Slate Run and Bonnell Run. The water is clearing nicely, the heavy flows have ebbed and the trout are looking up. Anglers should not miss this extended opportunity to fish for the big brown trout in The Stretch this year.

Straub Brewery of St. Marys, Pa. makes a very substantial donation to the Slate Run Tackle Brown Trout Club each year. We are doubling our Brown Trout Club stocking from $10,000 worth of trout to $20,000 worth so that the whole catch-and-release trout stretch will have the same trout density as the delayed harvest did in the past. These large, wonderful fish offer a great experience for trout fishermen in "The Stretch." Since it is a "catch and release" area these fish will offer many repeat opportunities to trout anglers throughout the year, and we have found there are many very large holdovers lurking from the mouth of Slate to the Naval Run Pool.

 

Straub Brewery is a family owned business that produces a traditional handcrafted beer in the "Pa Wilds" of North Central Pennsylvania.  Peter Straub started the brewery in the Allegheny Mountain town of St. Marys in 1872. The family attitude of perfection in their brewery is reflected in the support of projects like the Slate Run Tackle Brown Trout Club. We appreciate their support, you can enjoy their products at the Hotel Manor. ( My favorite is Peter Straub Special Dark )

          Lord Nelson's Gallery, located in historic downtown Gettysburg, Pa, has been a long time supporter of the Slate Run Tackle Brown Trout Club.  They have donated many high quality limited edition prints over the years to be raffled off and the proceeds go to buying the Brown Trout that are stocked in the Delayed Harvest Area on Pine Creek.  Any one who has caught one of these spectacular trout can attest to their quality. Just seeing these fine trout feed on the surface is a thrill, and can cause a lot of excitement even among the most experienced anglers.

        Their fine art and prints can be seen on WWW.lordnelsons.com or call them on 800-664-9797.  The club raffle runs from June through November.  The funds go to the cost of trout for the project. Tickets are available at our store.

        Sand River Frame & Photo donated the beautiful photo of local Pine Creek Eagles combined with custom framing made from Black Walnut that came from the original Tomb estate in Slate Run. The combination of local breeding eagles and Black Walnut from the estate of the first settler in the Pine Creek Valley made this a very special part of the Brown Trout Art Raffle. You can see more beautiful art and framing at www.sandriverframephoto.com

Slate Run

Please click on the link above to access the current stream conditions at the Cedar Run Station
Water Conditions: Hatch Activity:
Clarity:

Slate Run is clearing and will be crystal clear by the end of the week.

Sulphers, Light Cahills, Slate Drakes, Gray Caddis and BWOs. 

Level:

Water levels are high but anglers can wade the edges and cross with care.

Temp: 52 degrees
Comments: Fly Patterns:

Slate Run is back in its banks and just slightly off color. Wading is okay but anglers will have to pick their spots to cross carefully. It is fishing well and will be ideal by the weekend.

Patterns that mimic the above hatches in emerger, dun and spinner phases. The Slate Run Tackle Shop is well stocked with all of the above flies.
