Smallmouth Bass Around State College, Pa

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

I'm new to this forum, and I was wondering if any of you have had any luck catching smallies around State College, PA. I'm a student at PSU who doesn't have a vehicle up here, but I've been trying to see if the local buses around town can get me close to any smallie streams. I've done a lot of poking around on the internet and found creeks such as Penns Creek, Bald Eagle Creek, as well as a ton of info on the Juniata and Susquehanna Rivers, but I'm looking for something slightly closer (if possible). When googling "Smallmouth streams state college" or something to that affect, I actually found a post on this forum from 2009 that lead me here. I'm not looking for exact spots or anything, just stream suggestions.

Thanks! :)

there is a lake about 10 minutes from state college that has some real big smallmouth in it. not a numbers type of lake but you can almost always catch a few and you do get the occasional giant. also has stocked fingerling brown trout in the fall. no boats allowed though... pm me if you want to know more , not a lot of people fish it so i don't want to talk about it openly on a forum.

bald eagle creek has smallies in it as well as sayers dam.

Join Penn States bass club and you wont need a car as they have get togethers and go fishing a lot (at least when I used to fish it). Look them up on facebook. They have a page and I am sure there are people in the bass club that would love a partner to fish with!

Bald eagle smallies fish best from the bridge in milesburg up. It gets SUPER LOW. I brought a 4lb fish out of there two summers ago on a pop r at dusk.

Thanks for the help guys! School has been kicking my butt so I haven't been on here for a while. Ill definitely check out the PSU Bass Club and plan on going to Bald Eagle Creek when it starts warming up. I have a lot of new baits and rigs to try!

I live right on the creek so if you wanna know what it looks like before making a trip drop me a line. When the smallie action really fires up its almost certain youre going to have to go topwater with exception of a few pools. Most of it will be ankle deep at best.
