I was wondering if anyone is familiar with the stoney creek river. I have fished trout out of it by the glessner covered bridge for years, but apparently theres suppose to be good small mouth fishing after the Kantner bridge. I know nothing more than it says on "The stoney creeks" website that it is stocked with smallies after the kantner bridge, but I dont know of anybody who has fished there. Any info would be appreciated.

I fished it once, quite a few years ago now.
Walked downstream a little ways into the gorge from that covered bridge. It's a nice looking stream there.
I found a few fish rising to a rather sparse hatch of cahills, if I remember correctly.
Caught what looked to be run of the mill stockers. I wasn't impressed by it enough to return, though

I've not fished Stoney Ck in years. When I did, I fished from Rt 30 upstream. I did well on mostly small fish. But it was all dry flies, and no one around... I felt like somebody was gonna jump out of the bushes and arrest me.

Hatches come and go of their own accord, but work will wait for you to get back.

It's a beautiful high-gradient stream from Glessner bridge down through the gorge. Fished it about a week ago, and caught a handful of small browns 6-8" and a few similar sized smallmouths on wets and dries. Looks like it should have more fish than I was able to find.

Try BELOW Holsopple , take the dirt roads that run up and down the train tracks. There are many places where small springs empty in but you gotta find 'em.
