What kind of fish is that?
 
Kinzua Dam - View from Jakes Rocks Where to start?! There's the extensive Allegheny Reservoir, stretching from the Kinzua Dam into McKean County and New York State. Here, anglers will find Muskellenge, Northern Pike, Walleye, Trout, Smallmouth Bass, Channel Catfish, Carp, Suckers, White Bass, and other Panfish. The Allegheny Reservoir produced the current and former Pa. State Record Northern Pike and the current Pa. State Record Walleye!!!
It also produced the current NY State Record Walleye and former NY State Record Channel Catfish, in the New York State portion of the Reservoir. The same species can also be found in the Allegheny River, which snakes it's way from the outflow of the Kinzua Dam down to Pittsburgh. The Allegheny is included in the Federal Wild and Scenic Rivers from the Kinzua Dam, downstream to Emlenton, Pa. In addition, a few lucky anglers have also taken Flathead Catfish in the Allegheny River. Beautiful evening on the Alleghney Reservoir at Roper Hollow

From the spillway of the Kinzua Dam, down to the confluence with the Conewango Creek (Point Park, in the City of Warren) is designated as a Special Regulations Area. This stretch of water routinely produces trophy-sized Trout.
As a bonus to anglers and sightseers, there is a new fishing and observation deck, with handicapped access, on the Hemlock Road side of the dam. Bring lots of bait, though, as legions of small Rainbow Trout are ready and willing to take almost anything offered.
Fishermen at Chapman State Park For Stocked Trout try Chapman State Park or one of the various Approved Trout Waters throughout the county. The Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission and local Fish Hatcheries stock good numbers of trout in the local streams.
Warren County Anglers owe many thanks to the Farnsworth Trout Club, for their ongoing efforts at helping sustain our local fisheries. They keep the Farnsworth Branch well-stocked. Each spring, they also host the Jeff Burns Memorial Fishing Contest, for our young anglers. Trout in Farnsworth Creek
Tionesta Creek - West Branch Anglers frequently find Muskies in the Tionesta Creek and it's larger tributaries. They sometimes get a thrill when they're fishing for Trout, as a Muskie engulfs their Rooster Tail and then breaks off the line, as though it were a mere nuisance. Although they are present year round, late Fall is an excellent time to catch them, as they have depleted the supply of left-over stocked Trout and native baitfish, and are eager to hit almost anything that looks edible. Topwater baits, large spinners, and Rapala-type lures produce well, and often induce a spectacular strike. Large live chubs, suspended under a float, are an excellent Fall bait in these creeks. You probably won't catch the next State Record on these creeks, but Muskies in the 28" to 38" range are common, and they put up an excellent fight, especially when you factor in the creekside brush and sunken logs... and no, I'm not going to give up the location of my favorite secret spot. But suffice it to say, with a little scouting to locate the deeper holes, especially with overhanging brush, you can quickly find yourself battling the king of freshwater gamefish.
For an adventure, consider one of the many ponds in the county.Ponds on State Game Lands 282, State Game Lands 29, and Brown's Pond, on Cemetery Road, near Lander, are stocked with Largemouth Bass, Bullhead Catfish, Bluegill, and occasionally Crappie.
 



Ice Fishing

Ice Fishermen on Chapman Lake Ice fishing is very popular in Warren County, whether it be on the on the vast Allegheny Reservoir for Walleye, Muskie, Northern Pike, Trout, and Panfish, or at Chapman State Park, for Trout, small Perch, and the occasional Bass. Ice anglers can also find solitude and willing fish in the ponds on  State Game Lands 282, State Game Lands 29, and Brown's Pond, near Lander. Be careful, though, as ice conditions can deteriorate quickly during warm spells.
