Thanks, I will consider all the advice I have recived here.

I know all about not catching a ton of fish, sometimes my middle name is "SKUNK'' I have been surf fishing for 10 + years with many trips getting nothing. And belive me I also know all about spot burning, I just wanted to be pointed in the general direction
I'm the same way when it comes to the surf, I would'nt tell anyone exactly where to go just a ball park area, you have to put in the time and experience.

It's just too cold right now to fish streams. The water freezes in your guides and when that happens you risk breaking a rod. I'll wait until it get's above 30 degrees. I stay local for winter fishing that way I don't waist time traveling during the short days. It makes a difference because you maximize time on the water, you just don't catch as many fish during the winter because they aren't as active.

This is great advice, particularly the stay local thing. If Codorus is a few minutes from you, then taking a few minutes to drive over and spending 30 minutes there will help you get your "fix". I think fishing local streams in the Winter make the most sense.

Speaking of ice in the guides, I head chap stick on your guides prevents them from freezing. Yay, nay?

It helps. But in my experience, it doesn't "solve" the problem.

i.e. if it's 31 degrees, it will significantly extend the time between cleaning the ice out of the guides. After a little while, it'll wear off and all will be back to normal.

If its 20 degrees out, forget it.

Report for Sunday @ muddy creek.
No fish and cold. But I loved every minute of it.

ATW's AND all areas downstream, unless under special regulation.


I don't think pcray is right. Only the actual ATW is closed to fishing beginning March 1. "Downstream areas" only is of significance in defining what waters are covered by the extended season. Of course, after March 1, there is no extended season, so the reduced creel limit that applied to ATW-downstream-areas is no more and any trout caught in a "downstream area" after March 1 must be returned to the stream unharmed.


That is a good point Jack, and I believe you are correct. You can still fish those downstream areas, but not harvest trout. If asked by a fish cop, I probably wouldn't admit i was fishing for trout, but many have other species that are worth targeting.
