I sure do! Pinchot is shallow, and the fish bite there first of the season. Also, it's perfect for a float tube.
My "There be Lilly Pads" post was at Pinchot. >50 Bluegills on beadhead nymphs and lots of Pickerel in those Lilly Pads. I catch a bunch of Largemouth Bass at low light with my 6 wt and top water poppers.
Very close to me, I have Pinchot, Redman, Williams, Laurel, Opossum, and Marburg. Plus the lower Susquehanna (White Fly hatch just ended), Yellow Breeches, Mountain Creek, and the most wonderful Muddy Creek (not muddy at all, a trout paradise that fishes great all year)
So much world class warmwater and coldwater very close to me. Sometimes I get bored, and fish deep water with spin gear, but I could catch any day with my fly rod and feather flies!
A month ago was the last time I fished Pinchot. Thick weeds on the left side of the park (some call it the pond area). I talked with a young park ranger police guy, and he told me that they were about to use "weed cutters" in those shallow areas. I'll have to give it a shot in a couple days?
Thanks for reminding me! I forgot all about Pinchot!
