Pine Creek is very clear!

The moment everyone who fishes pine has been waiting for is finally here! March brown hatch was heavy and producing rising trout all afternoon! We have everything you need and if your tying we have sideling hill hackle that just came in! 

The water is up but the trout are still rising. March browns, Tan and brown Caddis, BWOs and midges have been present. Perfect time to throw some streamers!

The Brown Trout Club is in its drive to raise funds for the 2022 Pine Creek stockings. 2022 pins and license plates will become available this December.

March browns, sz 10-12 ,,tan and brown deer hair caddis in size 14-16; BWO parchutes in size 18. Green egg sac caddis 14-16

Anglers should also come prepared with a variety of subsurface trout patterns such as Wooly Buggers, Pheasant Tails, Copper Johns, Prince Nymphs, Rainbow Warriors, Frenchies, Walt's Worms, Perdigons, egg patterns, etc. Streamers will also work well in the hands of experienced anglers.

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.

Slate Run is clear.

Anglers may encounter Tan Caddis, Blue Quill, BWOs and March Browns on the lower section.

 

Level:

Slate Run's flows are elevated.

Temp: 56 degrees.
Comments: Fly Patterns:

Slate Run is running high from this past Friday-Saturday rains.

If you fish Slate Run anytime, please keep in mind that the Runs are NOT stocked and they rely solely on healthy speckled and brown trout populations to repopulate the streams.

Please handle the wild trout carefully, keep them wet. Remember that you do not need to take a photo of every fish that you catch!

The Slate Run Tackle Shop & Wolfe's General Store spring hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday. The deli closes one-hour before the store closes. 

Phone us for stream conditions and store details (570) 753-8551

For rising trout, use a dark elk or deer hair caddis imitation, a parachute BWO pattern, or a size 14 Patriot dry fly. Subsurface patterns include pheasant tails, hares ears, stoneflies, perdigons, wooly buggers, etc.

Like Slate, Cedar Run is running high with wadding a challenge on the lower sections.

Please handle fish carefully. While we can replenish Pine Creek with stocked trout, natural reproduction on Cedar and Slate runs takes years to recover from the mortailty rate caused by rough handling of wild trout.

The Slate Run Tackle Shop & Wolfe's General Store spring hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday. The deli closes one-hour before the store closes.
