I often times fish deer creek in allegheny county. Up until about a week ago I was catching fish on a regular basis. I have had success with both san juan worms and flashback pheasant tails.

However I stopped to do some fishing yesterday and much to my disappointment I didn't even see a fish. I can only figure a few reasons.
1. They didn't stock very much.
2. People are illegally taking them.
3. People are not being cautious in their releasing.

Does anyone fishing this area notice the same things?

I've never fished it.
But I'll bet the fish are still there.
Your lack of success was probably due to something else.
We did have some very cold weather last week - I remember several mornings there were some lows in the teens. That can make the fish very lethargic.

Things certainly don't always go as planned in this sport. That's why its' called fishing - and not catching!

Could be, but I did catch a fish there right after that last snowfall. It was just strange that in places where there were 10 fish a week ago I didn't see one. Just rock bottom!

BB -

There was a picture in the post gazette several weeks ago, of a guy with a large rainbow from deer creek. They guessed that it weighed around 5 pounds if I remember correctly.
Guess they're stocking some biguns there this year

That's the first time I fished it, funny because it's about 5 minutes from my house.

I was hoping to run into carp in the golf course section. Need to find a good carp spot in the north hills area.
