Captain Hook, was that eagle along the Shenango?  I've seen an osprey(90% sure) along the river a few times this year and even saw it attempt to catch a fish which was cool.

Ospreys are all over Shenango Lake as well as the lower river. They love to hover than go into a full dive for their fish diner. That Eagle was from Lake Willhelm this Spring. I have seen Eagles  flying on the lower river several years now. They also have been spotted on the lake. Here is a photo of wild ducks I see almost every year on the river only! I have seen these at least over the last 5 years of fishing every Spring. They are some kind of Mallard mix but every year they show up. I have seen more than one pair with these special markings. I finally got close enough one day to get a good photo a few years back.

That's always good news. The Shenango River (lower) has been runing as clear as I've seen in all the years I've fished it. The Walleye seem very healthy looking and make excellent eating. I know some people will disagree because of years past chemicals but the river has a huge volume of water flow year after year. I've seen nothing that will change our mind on Walleye they are firm, healthy, younger river fish. The river Walleye tend to be in the 16"- 20" range and are excellent eating. After all the years of past chemicals dumped in Erie and it's viral algae now present I know Shenango Walleye are no worse off. To me river Walleye, maybe due to cooler tempatures or current flow , have always tasted better. Especially when breaded ( Cheese It's ) and deep fried !

Bringing the thread back to life with some more recent pics.  So far 2013 isn't going nearly as well as 2012, but I've been catching a few fish....

Contrary to what I said in my last post in this thread, 2013 is actually going pretty good now! Spin fishing, fly fishing, bunch of trout, walleye, pike, and a bunch of other stuff. Mostly PA, but OH also. Caught 2 carp on jigs so far this year and a buddy got one on a crank. Weird.

Little John and his big brown!

John and Greg with their days' catch!
 
We started out at Tom's Run in Cook's Forest. They usually stock a lot of fish there just for kids. We didn't catch a single fish! I saw perhaps 5 fish caught all day. We left at 1PM. On the way home, the boys said, "Daddy, we don't want to go home! We promised Mama that we were gonna bring a bunch of fish home. Can we try somewhere else?"
Well, what's a Daddy for? "Of course we will! I can't have my boys breaking a promise!"
So we checked on a small (tiny) stream closer to home that is designated "kids and handicapped waters." It is usually hit pretty hard, but I figured we'd give it a try. When we got there, no one else was there. That's usually not a good sign. We got out and hit the first hole. BAM! Fish on! John caught a nice brown. Now it was Greg's turn. BAM! A rainbow! This is gonna be fun! Now the kids are really having a blast. They kept taking turns catching fish. They each had three and the fishing had really slowed down. Greg was talking about going home; John was talking about "one more cast" So I threaded a new minnow and cast out for him. Soon, line was screaming and so was John. I have to admit, he did an excellent job steering the fish away from log jams, undercut banks, and other debris. He landed the big brown and everyone was happy. Greg said, "That's a monster fish, John! I'm proud of you! I caught three. You caught four. That's enough. I can't wait to see the look on Mama's face, and I gotta poop. Let's go home." I almost fell in the stream, laughing.
So all in all, it was a successful fishing trip. The boys caught fish, no one got hurt, and nobody fell in the water. What more could a Daddy ask for?

We stopped by there Friday afternoon the water was fast, brown and high, just a mess.  Sometimes we'll go there to watch the kids catch fish.  Great little corner of the forest without all the extra water.   Glad to hear kids did so well.  We fished upper Mill Creek and I would guess we lost a foot of water Saturday.  By Sunday noon-time it was just about fishable.

Dr. Trout, you are welcome. Thanks for watching it!
Chris, I heard that they stocked less than half of the fish that they normally do at Tom's Run due to the high water.

Buddies and I went to camp over the weekend and decided to try out some new water.  Was rewarded with this 16 1/2" brookie.  Biggest trout I've ever caught.
