Fished Pymy today from 8:00 - 3:00 for crappies.  Launched at Jamestown and caught nothing.  I am trying to learn the crappie fishing in this lake but it is frustrating.  I don't seem to have a problem catching crappies elsewhere but seem to have trouble locating them on Pymatuning.  I think next time I am going to try the north end of the lake.

JeffCo, this time of year the North end is the place to be. Although I don't fish for crappies at Pymo (bass when I'm there) I see alot of guys doing well inside some of the bays around weeds or on flats in front of the bays. Sometimes the Southern end can be a bit colder this early, it will turn on soon.
 
Good luck....

Ready2Fish / Chauncy,
 
Thank you much for the information.  I will be heading up again in the next two weeks and will definitely try the North end of the lake. 
 
Does the south end ever produce many crappies during the course of the year or does the structure pretty much make the North end the place to be year-round fro crappie.
 
I haven't targeted them this year yet, but in years past I have had decent action walleye in the south end out of the Jamestwon launch.
 
If can ever help either of you with any lakes that I fish, let me know.

have seen fishermen pulling them out of the bay and along the way at new bowers launch, just south of the causeway, ohio side.  we have picked them up off of fishing point, lots of fish, sometimes small.  farther back into that bay, fish the stick-ups.  caution, the water gets shallow.

Re: RE: pymy 2013/07/11 09:46:22 (permalink)
Hey guys, sorry to dig up this thread, but I am heading up to Pymy tomorrow for the 1st time and will be renting a boat out of Espyville so I am looking for any tips on location.  I stick with catch & release, so im not specifically looking to bank on crappie. My top targets are Walleye and Muskie.
 
Can I just troll around the lake for the muskie or are there specific locations for those elusive guys?
 
Any suggestions?

Sorry I didn't see this sooner or I would have replied and tried to help you. How did you do? This brought back some memories for me cause this was from when I lived in Pittsburgh still before moving up here... Now I'm the one peoe are asking advice from haha.

I never really target musky, actually looking to sell my musky gear, I always catch them while fishing for other species mainly bass in the spring. Let us know how you did...

The worst day hunting or fishing will always be better then the best day at school or work!

Fished Pymi yesterday 10-3 caught 6 -12" plus crappie and that was tuff. Fished out of Manning and went north from there, caught most off tuttle. Marked many just had a tuff time catching. Tightlines. Ron

Re: RE: pymy 2013/07/14 13:34:56 (permalink)
We did terrible out there on Friday. Fished 8-6 and only picked up 3 perch, not even big for a perch.

We tried lures of all sorts, minnows and worms. The night crawlers were the only attractive bait that day.

We trolled, drifted and anchored out. We were in a rented boat from espyville. Great weekday deals, but no depth finder so I was cautious where I took it.

My guess is that the high pressure system rolling in, along with my lack of knowledge on that water both stacked up against us.

Oh we'll, it was a fun day on a pretty lake.

don't feel too bad srl, fished it saturday from 6-4, 6 perch, NO EYES, 8 CATFISH, 3 crappie, and 4 bass. Couldn't buy an EYE, disappointed but any day out is better then a day spent at work.

Got Walleye???

Is it at the point now that all that's hitting is catfish? You know, you're drifting a jig n crawler, set the hook, feel a nice fish on, the net guy is all prepared to net a nice 'eye and it's a slimy cat. Are we there yet?

Oh, Almost forgot. I saw on the Weather Channel that there has been T storm possibilities for roughly the last 3 weeks...almost everyday. Has it rained quite a bit or is that the WC employing the CYA strategy?

When trolling try further up in the water column. I found just by accident that the eyes like to suspend in the 15-19 range this time of year.  But you only get about a 2-3 week window to catch them than they go deep.

LOL. I remember last year with the net out looking for an eye only for it to be a cat, happened to me almost every trip. Caught some big cats but wanted the eyes. It took a while but I ended up finding a few eyes. Tightlines.

Pymy (a/k/a;Pymie)

Had to be up bright and early before noon today for an oilchange appointment. So I thought I'd stop by Snodgrass and see what kind of condition the condition was in.

As hoped, I found there to be beautiful conditions as the early morning sun was lighting up the autumn foilage on the west shore.

Of course I took a few pics and as expected the pics don't come close to showing the true conditions.

Also noticed the abundance of acorns laying on the ground. Unfortunately, these acorns are of the 'red oak' variety so I just left them lay there. Red Oak is just not as sweet as White Oak even when they're roasted over an open fire. Or.... is that chestnuts?? 🤔

Also, did younz know people are actually awake and moving about at that time of morning? 🌞

Re: RE: pymy 2019/10/23 19:46:50 (permalink)
Dave it does not appear as though the lake has dropped any to date. There is a few places at Snodgrass where a guy can step off the shoreline riprap and stand at waters edge but I think that's been the norm.

The only thing wrong with this picture is I ain't standing at waters edge with fishing rod in hand needing one more walleye for my limit.🎃


But what a great view and the end to another beautiful day in PA and a lovely night on the Pymy...... (a/k/a; pymie🤗)

Pics sure are nice that's for sure. Sad scenery like that will soon be gone.

Just a few feet of sandy/gravel shoreline was visible, here & there, but there was a stiff breeze blowing straight into Snodgrass pushing the water toward shore, during my visit.

Wind was of the type, a guy could be eating the fishing lure, he just tried casting. 🙈

Keep those pics coming 👍
