Its been a while but finally home and got to fish the Shenango River right below the dam in Sharpsville today. went from around 10am-6pm right before the storms rolled through. Great fishing today...mostly panfish as seen from the photos but these guys have definitely been eating their wheaties...nice sized and decent fighters

Some nice bluegills there. The autumn months are among the best for WW fish and many anglers overlook 'em in Sept/Oct since there's so much else to do.

(Which county were you fishing in?)

Nice report. I was there last Saturday and the bass fishing reallllly slowed down. I was also hoping to get a few more carp on the fly this year but the cold weather has most of them in deeper water now. Fish with streamers and you might get a few white bass or hybrids, they're a blast on the fly there. That stretch from the dam to the bridge is a fantastic fishery for everything, my record there I think is 8 species in a day.
