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.

Same as on Slate Run.

Cedar Run's levels are above slightly above normal for this time of year.

Temp: 35 degrees.
Comments: Fly Patterns:

Cedar run is slightly higher then usual.

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.

 

 

 

Same as on Slate Run but dont sleep on the green weenie, it flat out works on cedar.
