Heading out to elk county for a long weekend coming up in November. We are staying in Benezette. Seeking some advice/locations from folks that have fished this area before. I've been up there plenty of times but this will be my first time fishing in the area. Thanks in advance. PM's appreciated

Hope for some rain - the creeks up there were painfully low this past weekend. There are fish in most creeks, but very spooky and they were starting the mating dance.

Google "Elk State Forest", give them a call, and ask them to mail you the Elk State Forest map.

They are free.

Any tips on some smaller streams from the nat. repro. list? Im only going to have limited time and would like to hit the better spots if possible. I'll be by myself and more than likely wouldnt be back for a year or so, I wont be doing any spot burning.

PM's appreciated

A few weeks ago I fished the first fork, I had a hard time but managed a few while covering a good bit of water. Fished below the dam afterwords and had a blast on smallmouth. Just a consideration.

Thanks for the tips everybody. I hit a little brookie stream for a few hours and had some luck. Great place to fish, can't wait for next year.
