Friday we headed out to New Castle. PA to do some more trout fishing.  We fished the same small creek we fished on the opener, and there was actually more leftover fish than I thought.  The water was still way too low and clear.  The fish would come up to my fly and reject it at the last second.  Ended up catching a decent smallmouth bass and a shiner.  Did hook a few trout though but didn't land any.

Saturday we decided to try out a nearby lake.  It's been I think 3 years since we fished it last,  and it was in the summer so this was our first time targeting trout there.  When we first got there it was a largemouth on every other cast before they became spooky.  Also got two decent sized crappie.  The lake also got re-stocked with rainbows while we were there, and after the fish got dumped in it was one fish after another!  Ended up with 20 or so trout.  Most of the fish were caught on small streamers.
