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):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 64 degrees. The large female bass will be on the beds and holding tight. Spawning bass won't be feeding aggressively at this water temperature but they will be catchable. In addition, all bass don't spawn at the exact same time or water temperature. If you aren't a site fisherman, you should be able to find some larger females and male largemouth on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding so fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again.

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):
Smallmouth bass are generally their most active at 64. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the smallmouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day.
Beltzville Lake Crappie Rating:
2.5
Beltzville Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie spawn should be really heating up now. Crappie prefers to spawn on gravel bottom typically with brush and/or emergent vegetation for cover. If the lake is void of gravel bottoms, find the rocks or rip rap. Crappie will use the larger structure rocks for cover. Cast some small grub baits in the shallows looking for the spawning crappie. Good luck today!
Beltzville Lake Walleye Rating:
2.5
Beltzville Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.
Beltzville Lake Catfish Rating:
3.5
Beltzville Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The water temperature is climbing and the catfish will start becoming more active now. The catfish spawn is right around the corner and generally all catfish species will be looking to spawn. Blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish spawn in much the same areas. Mostly spawning in deep tree lay downs that have lots of shade, holes in the bank, sunken barrels and tires. With baitfish becoming active, it?s time to catch some small sunfish, bluegill, shad and frogs and getting the line in the water.

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.
