Tuscaroara Crick Report---Succesful !!!!!

Recommended Posts

Well, the smallies are gettin into action! I was out with two buddies last Sunday, it was a good day for my buddy. He caught his first fish on a topwater. He was using a jitterbug. A nice one for the crick is around 3 pounds. He finished with 17, i finished with 14, and our other buddy had 2. Monday came around and my Dan (buddy 1) wanted to go out and fish evening and night. We were both using jigs, I finished with 13 bass, he had 6. We did no fishing Teusday and Wednesday.

Thursday was the last day of school so we got out at 12:30. I went that afternoon. We had got almost an inch of rain Wednesday night, and the crick was up 5 inches and visibility was less than that. It took me all afternoon, but around 4 i found a pattern on a spinnerbait. The smallies were holdin tight to the bank and on wood. I managed 2, 1 was 3.5 pounds. Friday came around and me and Carson ( the other buddy that caught 2 last time) wanted to go all afternoon, so we did. I used my pattern from the day before to land 16 smallies by 7:30, but then they quit, and the water had cleared amazingly by then, I could see bottom in 3 feet of water, so I switched from chartreuse w/ 2 gold colorado blades to white w/ 2 gold colorado blades. Almost imediatley, I started catching them again. My biggest of the day was 1.8 pound, the rest were all over 1 pound, a very nice day by the usual standards of the crick. I finished with 23, my buddy had 2. A good day in the crick between June and September is at least 25 smallies, and it's nothing to catch 4 or 5 over 3 pound in a day.

Is this the Tuscarora Creek in Juniata County? If so, where are you fishing it?

Yep, sure is!!!  We usually fish between Ford Island and Devils Kitchen. It's up around the Spruce Hill Area. Have you fished it before?

That's still a very good place. It runs about 12 feet from there up to the island now. Scince we have been encouraging catch and release up here lately, there are some really nice smallies in there.

About five years ago my grandpa said the Amish had been fishing it out, keeping all the fish and damaging the fish population. I'm glad to hear it's doing better now, maybe I'll try to make a trip out there the next time I visit my grandparents.

I was down there once, and there was some amish boys throwin every fish they caught in a bucket, someone come down from the house above and yelled at them. They didn't release the fish, but I haven't seen them since  ;D. You'll have to let me know when ya come up, maybe we can fish together! ;)
