Ahhhhhh gotcha! Then I've fished that many times. I guess I dont' consider that a "lake" haha! I was thinking down by Alvin R dam.

That stretch down there is killer smallie water in the summer. That was the first place I ever fly fished for smallies.

It's hardly a lake, in fact we call all these impoundments lakes and they really aren't lakes, they are reservoirs or impoundments. And they nearly always turn cold water streams into warm water streams, because they don't construct them correctly. And what's worse is that many are constructed on DCNR Land.

Word. The water above the "lake" at Ole Bull is considerably better, that's for sure. Have you ever fished below Alvin R Bush? I never went that far down stream.

Below Alvin Bush Dam it is stocked to Owl Hollow. For the record, I don't fish the stocked water on Kettle, and I've never had a bad day of fishing anywhere in the drainage, in spite of the fact it's one of the latest watersheds to warm up in the spring.

I always wondered about it, but never tried it. I'm a bit with you, I tend to fish higher up, althought I do fish the FFO C&R section quite a bit. That's nostalgic for me, though. That is where I learned to fly fish, so stocked or not, its "special" to me.

My family has rented one of those Kettle Creek Cabins there at the interesection of 144 and 44 for over 15 years. I LOVE the stretch of Kettle that flows behind those cabins. My brother and I would walk up that stream for miles and miles some days. Saw lots of bears back in those hills.
