Fishing Info >>
Washington County offers some of the best smallmouth bass fishing in the world. Three to four pound bass are not uncommon. A variety of methods to fish bass are used including trolling, casting, and fishing with live bait.
Cathance Lake offers an excellent Landlocked salmon fishery. These salmon range from 14 - 24 inches and 4 - 5 pound salmon are not uncommon. Trolling is the most effective method to catch these fish, although live bait works well also.
Washington County also offers some great places for ice-fishing from large lakes to small ponds. The ice-fishing season lasts from January 1st to March 31st.
I can provide all of the gear you would need for an ice-fishing outing. You can fish out of an ice shack or camp on a local lake or just fish out on the open ice on a nice day. Fish that can be caught through the ice on local lakes include landlocked salmon, smallmouth bass, brook trout, white perch, and yellow perch.
Hot food is a must when ice-fishing. I usually bring coffee and cook hot dogs and hamburgers or the fish that are caught.
