Tuesday Morning 2 friends made the drive up from lancaster to smallie fish with the fly rods on penns. I am a diehard flly fisherman for trout but never really went after smallmouth on penns. What a day it turned out to be. Everyone caught from 20 to 30 smallmouth each. Phillyfly and I both caught chain pickeral in the catch and release section just below the fish comish cabin (winter hole). You would be shocked at the number of smallmouth in the c&r section. Great day by all!! I would have pics but I let my iphone in my pocket while wet wading!! If ya get a chance chase the bronze brusiers on penns!

Great to hear. Lower Penns (and many lower sections of trout rivers) is known to be a smallie hotspot. SMBs with columnaris lesions have been found in Penns in past surveys. How did the fish look? Any sores?

I caught this guy in the C&R section 2 years ago . Tim Holschlag listed Penns as one of the top 5 smallie spots in the state .

I live 15 min from the lower section of penns and there are some really nice sized SMB in the area close to the susky. Down my way there is a lot more carp mixed in as well. Its a really nice summertime retreat for wet wading. congrats on the good fishing in the c&r area!

Last year we hammered SM in the C&R section of Penns. I'm fairly certain we landed well over 30 of them in a few hours if my memory serves. I also got a small musky (about 13 inches).

What a quality stream for all kinds of fishing!
