    Default Any plans?


    All the presents are unwrapped and the fire works are over so what is next? It is not cold enough for lake ice for drilling holes. Yet not warm enough that you guides are not freezing.
    I plan on some fishing trips and want to fish some new crappie water in 2023. One place is at Lake Howard in the center of the state. I was told in the spring you can catch them in the shallows. Also the fishing pier can be a good choice to investigate. Does anyone have any first hand knowledge on it?
    Lake Marburg near Hanover can be a good spot for crappie a little later in the spring if you have patience. Fishing the shallow coves and creek areas can produce so very large fish. That is if you can find them.
    Anyone want to share there ideas and spots without spot burning them?

    Yes I have fished it a lot , fishing pier is good take a lantern and rope fish at night , if you have boat fish under bridge and in marina around docks road beds and bay down towards breast, I think itís hunters bay. Another place is below dam in spillway and back waters you may caught anything down there, they drop water this time of year fish get sucked out of tubes there . Make sure you read the regulations on lake. If you want more information let me know! Gary Any plans?Any plans?Any plans?Any plans?

    They keep the water low from late fall until later in the spring. It is considered a flood control lake.
    If you are using a boat most of the launches are not usable this time of year.

    The last time I checked the limit for crappies is 10 fish maximum. Of the 10 total crappies, only 5 could be over 9 inches.
    Sunfish have a minimum length of 7 inches.

    Hope this helps.

    Zimmy: What time of year do you recomend fishing? I like when the fish are in pre-spawn or early spawn time. Also when is the best time Season to fish the pier? How can you access the spillway? I will more then likely be fishing r=from shore as I will be towing my camper. I though about making a rack to carry my canoe on it but.????

    Addicted, I have fished it all year, spring is good, nice campground there but not much shade, It sounds like you like the spring, good time all areas are good then fishing pier is right on the creek channel fish out by the end of it, minnows and a bobber with rope and lantern, take a five gallon bucket, take lid cut a slot 2 by 8Ē in it to put fish in , to many nosey people on pier. Now spillway main road is on west side of dam go about 1 mile past park gate turn right on road 1/4mile turn right again going south pass thru trailer court on left you will see sewage plant turn on that road park by there entrance you will see spillway, walk past plant and down across the field to spillway, fish spillway and backwaters on other side of spillway, very good in spring. Also under bridge, fish the road side creek channel on that side, Howard side not as good. Good luck, if you need more info please let me know Any plans?Any plans?Any plans?Any plans?Any plans?

    Thanks Zimmy. My wife and I camper at the park 2 years ago but I fished another area for trout. We did ride around the lake so I have some knowledge of the area. I may try late March or early April for a starter. I like a adventure but my body is getting worn out and a few hours of activity and I am ready for a break. Walking long distances is not on my agenda any longer. I used to go to Brookville and got engaged to my wife there 43 years ago.

    No my wife is from Washington Pa. I met a person when I went away to school from Brookville,K Crooks. They had a store in Brookville and the parents lived on the hill in Brookville. I used to travel to Brookville and fish the project waters for trout years ago. We got engaged the opening day of trout fishing at the bridge where the Chevy deal is or was.. I wanted to get away and that seemed to be a good option. We have lived in Cumberland co for over 40 years. It was actually 1977 when we got engaged if I remember correctly. The area behind the dam has really changed. I was there about 4 or 5 years ago and saw a new parking lot and improvements made. I was very disapointed as I really liked the look that it used to be. Somewhat rustic and not so open. We had a few pic nicks there and the memories were very pleasant.
