That's a beautiful part of the state, loaded with options of some incredible fishing, as you well know. Big water, medium water, famous water, small streams and unknowns are pretty much all within a 2:00-2:30 window. Steelies or Salmon are a bit of a push further at 4:00-5:00.

Not sure what your occupation is, but as you're likely finding jobs can be limited. State College/Lock Haven put you at the center of the most variety of options I'd think. There's always the old stomping grounds of the master himself, Ard which is Williamsport.

Good luck on the new accommodations and job.

Thanks Man! Hopefully the Prize Patrol pull up my driveway next month and I won't have to worry about anything but closing dates!

John: We have talked about this in the past and it just never happens. Sure would be good to finally get it done this year, keep me posted if you make any plans I sure would like to do it.

Default Re: 2013 Goals...

All my life I fished, either from shore or from a canoe with my Uncle, for warmwater species. Last year my Uncle got an inflatable pontoon boat, me a kayak. We have been enjoying more freedom of movement, and for me also finally the ability to actually use my cheap Pflueger fly rod I got years ago that is kind of wearing out. This Christmas I got completely set up with a 5 weight and 3 weight fly rod. This year I plan to expand my fishing much more with the fly rod and less with the spinning and bait casting rigs (to the point I hope to mostly just use the fly rods.) I want to try and hook myself into my first "decent" sized bass on the fly rod (to date my biggest on the fly road was about the size of a small perch, so there is plenty of room for improvement )

I also would like to start trying to get out occasinally and try for a species I know virtually little about......trout (yup, this may sound odd on a fly fishing forum, but I have only ever caught 3 trout in my life, all three on ice fishing traps ). This will probably be tough since I don't know any fly fishing trout guys except one, my friend, who also admits he is pretty much a big "noob" to both fly fishing and trout.

Also I want to learn to tie a few different flies and then try to actually catch fish with them.
