Pickerel are abundant. Shiners and silver spinners with dark feathers work best. Muskies can be caught by off the shoal by the power lines. Find the perch and you will find the muskies. The perch will also hit the silver spinners.

The two best places to fish at Beltzville are around the dam and in the small creeks running through. I suggest using live baits or berkley gulp worms. Most other lures have little to no results. Tons of panfish and crappie here

Beltzville Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- This has to be one of the worst places to fish. Out for 6 hours today and not even a bite. Any tips
greatly appreciated.


Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
At 57 degree water temperature largemouth bass fishing is in pre-spawn now. It's time to get fishing. Female bass are going to be moving up to the spawning beds. Male largemouth bass will be starting to build the spawning nests in protected coves. Bass prefer to spawn in weedy and woody cover deep in coves that will be protected from the wind and other elements. This is the best time to catch the lake record bass. The female bass will be feeding until they reach the beds and start the spawn. The smaller male bass will be attacking lures also. It is on like donkey kong!!! Hit the water NOW, we can?t believe you are reading this and not fishing right now. GET OUT!!

Beltzville Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Fish shoals and points for smallmouth. Live minnows and spinners, such as Rooster tails work very well. Silver spinners with black feathers work best. The point where the Pohopoco and Wild Creek channels meet is a favorite spot for smallies. The steep south side of the Wild Creek channel is also a good smallmouth spot. I have had decent action by the Pine Run bridge.

Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With the water temperature at 57 degrees smallmouth bass fishing is ready to heat up for spring. The bass will be starting to move into their spawning area. Smallmouth bass will generally spawn on rock and gravel bottoms that are protected from the elements. It's time to get fishing and look for staging bass in deeper water.
Beltzville Lake Crappie Rating:

Beltzville Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie should be getting ready to spawn. Stay out in deeper water and look for schools. Schooling shad will be harder to find with this water temperature so when you find it, stay on it. Crappie schools will be breaking up quite a bit getting ready for the spawn. Also try fishing shallower with small crank baits and spinners on the warm banks with direct sunlight. This is a great time to be on the water.

Beltzville Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye are coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding very more aggressive making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Walleye will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into the lake flats and deep structure. It?s time to hit the water. This may be the best water temperature to be on the water. There shouldn?t be too many fishermen on the water this early and there are many species that are hitting their prime water temperatures to be biting very well. Have fun today!
Beltzville Lake Catfish Rating:

Beltzville Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Beltzville Lake Striped Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Fish points off coves, they come in later in the day to feed. Drifting around the dam piers at night, vary weight using medium split shots, drifting or slow troll, but not bottom fishing. Leave out 20 feet of line make a few drifts then 30feet slow troll. More or less line, depending on where you mark fish in the water column. These fish love ailwives(local schooling baitfish), chicken livers, even large crawlers trailing. They school chasing baitfish, when site fishing toss floating rapalas, and countdowns just under surface above stripers. Color of choice is black/silver and blue /silver hard bodies. They are there in great numbers, if you seek them, you will catch them...up to 30+lbs. Good luck FISH ON!!! July is smoking for Stripes.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
