Stepping into Winter
« on: December 23, 2021, 08:26:17 AM »
Starting to feel more like winter out there...one step at a time.

The temperature graph from Danville says it all...



Some milder daytime temps are predicted but below freezing temps at night will keep the water cold.

I hope to keep at it as long as the river ice man stays away. Picked up 4 small ones yesterday.

Just did a little shopping this morning...I passed both Penns Creek and Middle Creek

Penns Creek has floating ice on it this AM...Penns Creek begins up in Poe Paddy State Park and the Penns Cave area of Centre County...much colder water

Middle Creek begins and ends in central PA in Snyder county...warmer water...no ice this morning

Some snow overnight.

The only fisherman you should try to be better than.
Is the fisherman you was yesterday.
