So true (maybe not fun, but usually more successful).

Nice job D-nymph, another beauty!

Been finding good pickerel from my SUP lately. Getting a good strip set while keeping my balance has been interesting. LOL. Haven't fallen in yet but have come close a few times when they pounce as soon as the fly lands.

Good to see the good old chain picks getting some recognition.

They're a blast! In much of MD, they are the only toothies around, and they may not be the biggest or most challenging fish to catch but I like to think it is a good tune-up for chasing muskies later this fall. I'm certainly becoming more composed in dealing with explosive, unpredictable strikes...

Nice chain picks Fred. Southeast PA is filthy with pickerel? That is something I wasn't aware of.....northeast PA and into Jersey sure, but I thought chain picks in the southeast were about as abundant as they are here in central PA. Here, but not here, there, and everywhere..

Thanks

Closest Chains in Pa for me are in Chester CO. I literally live in the most south eastern part in Pa, basically on the Delaware border. Upper SE PA has some maybe that is in what he referring to.

Definitely not filthy with them. There are two lakes that I can think of in what I consider SE PA to have them in good numbers, but most would be bordering NE PA.

I wish we had more pickerel in SE Pa from the standpoint of ice fishing, but we do not have many in SE streams, rivers, or public lakes. Fishable populations exist in about 10 or so public lakes plus parts of the upper Schuylkill River. Eliminate Schuylkill Co and you are down to a few public lakes of which I am aware that have reasonable populations.......Lake Towhee, possibly Lake Warren, Leaser Lake, possibly Chambers Lake, Hopewell Dam, possibly Scotts Run Lake. Nockamixon's population has greatly diminished such that they are not worth targeting, at least not on their own. They were extirpated from Struble Lake decades ago. There is CP reproduction in the Schuylkill River in the Hamburg-Bern vicinity. Someone introduced CP to Speedwell Forge Lake, so it may be that another lake will eventually be added to my list. The canals also have some.
