Come up and have the creek pretty much all to yourself. It's stocked and fishing really well since the last rain. The levels are perect and its a great time to try out some streamer and nymphing techniques.

1.5 ft. to 1.9 ft.: use caution - Level good for wading up to 50% of stream

1.0 ft. to 1.4 ft.:  Use caution - Can wade up to 75% of stream

Jig nymphs, classic nymphs, streamers, wooly buggers, egg patterns and squirmies should produce well after the state stocks.

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.

Slate Run


USGS Water Data
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 clear. Perfect fall fishing

Anglers best chance at catching a wild brown on slate this time of year would be using small nymphs and egg patterns or using small streamers in deep holes.

 

Level:

Slate Run's flows are normal for this time of year.

Temp: 36 degrees.
Comments: Fly Patterns:

Slate Run is clear so being cautious is the best approach.

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!

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.
