RE: Ice fishing state college
I lived in State College for 10 years (moved back to Erie 6 years ago), and spent many days chasing fish on hard water in central PA. From back when I was there:
Places to try near SC:
Sayer Lake: Perch and Crappies - usually steady action (towards the dam) - small-decent size fish
Colyer Lake - Nice fish (perch and gills), but it took a while to learn how to fish this small lake
There are a number of places to try w/in a 1.5 hour drive, but the above where the best in the area.
Black Moshanon - lots of slow days, but nice pike, big bass, and big perch when you found them.
