Fishing Ten Mile Creek for Musky

Hey all,
I'm going to be fishing for musky/Pike this week at Ten Mile Creek from the park down to the mouth at the Mon river. I would appreciate any tips as to what to use & how to use it. My tackle box & boat are both equiped to take on this task. Thanks in advance for any help.

A bad day of fishing beats a good day at work.

    I fished that section three times this spring from my boat.  I casted bucktails through every inch of it and never caught anything.  You may want to try trolling.  Let me know how you make out.

    Have never fished Ten Mile but I am absolutely addicted to musky fishing (despite my present lack of success).  I'll be curious to hear how you do so please post back.

    know a guy that has caught many many musky at the mouth and right on the river outside the mouth some very nice ones too so maybe your best luck is the mouth and all he does is troll with big ol lures good luck!!!!!!

    I know that you said downstream, but I have caught a couple musky upstream to the bridge on Rapalas in the past & since it is not that far it might be worth a try. Don't even know if you can still get up to it.  sam

    There is a older fellow that usually hangs around ten mile park launch on a golf cart.He showed me pictures last year of a guy that fishes there for them a lot and they were beauties 40 to 50 inches.He stated he caught them in the creek trolling i think.

    That steep rock area right across from the launch always looks so darn good to me, but I have yet to catch a thing there.

    Yes, it runs from 5 to 15 ft. deep and is no wake zone all the way down to the Mon.Ten Mile Park is a nice launch and parking area.

    I've fished the park area 2 or 3 times in my whole life and got skunked each time, idk if it was the time of the year, or the baits/lures. But it wasn't pretty...

    Hey All,
    I’ve fished it a couple of times since my 1st post with no luck regarding musky. I did however manage to nab a couple of smallies using live fatheads. I have been experimenting with a lure. I took a Buzz Bait, cut the wire off leaving enough to attach it to the front of a Heddon spook. Kind of like Larry Dahlberg’s Whopper Plopper but with the unbalanced blades in the front. It swam & sounded great. My next experiment is to attach the blades to the rear of the spook. I'm becoming obsessed with this. I'll let you guys know how I do. We are hitting the Yough Reservoir this weekend.

    A bad day of fishing beats a good day at work.

    I'm headed to Ten Mile and the Mon River tomorrow.  Hopefully my luck will change down there.  There has to be at least one dumb musky in there.

    Bucktails are nice. I have caught pike on a spinnerbait with a medium retrieve.

    Bigger is better.

    Hey SF,
    How did you do yesterday? I hope better than me. Nice meeting you & your son.
    Maybe we can get out together some time. Let me know.

    Likewise,  We caught one musky 38" up by Rices Landing.  The water color in the river was mud.  We had a good time.  I'm sure i'll see you around.

    Do they rent boats down there?? If so, where is the livery?

    Thanks..........

    My wife told me that if I didn't stop fishing every day, she'd leave me. Some days, I really miss her.

    Hey donpgh, There isn't any place on Ten Mile that I know of that rents boats, sorry. There is a place on the north side of Cross Creek Lake that dose if you are interested. You can also check out the Pennsylvania fish and Boat Commission web site. They may have more info there. Good luck.

    Can anyone tell me how far down river is the Maxwell Dam from Ten Mile or how long it takes to get there by boat with say a 20HP!? 
    Thanks!

    20 hp at the most 10 minutes I'm assuming it's a 16 ft. boat. I launch at east fredericktown at the state launch by the ferry and it's only 5 minutes from there.

    I had thought of launching there.  What does it cost to take the ferry?  What is the fee for going through the lock to get below Maxwell?  Thanks for the information.

    The Ferry is 2 dollars per vehicle per one trip not round trip.I think a boat would double the cost. They have very limited hours.It does not cost anything to launch there. I use the launch all the time. If you are from the Fayette side the Launch is the way to go.Yhe launch is a bout a mile from the jail. It's very easy to get to and there are a couple different ways to get there. It's actually LaBelle.

    Hey SF,

    It's 4.3 miles from the mouth of Ten Mile to the Maxwell Locks.
