Fishing At Pymatuning Lake
AKA: Pymatuning Reservoir
Fishing for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, channel catfish, flathead catfish, black crappie, white crappie, walleye, bluegill, pumpkinseed sunfish, white bass, yellow perch and muskie at Pymatuning Lake in Pennsylvania.
Straddling the Ohio-Pennsylvania border in northwest PA, Pymatuning Lake provides a wide variety of angling opportunities. This 14,600-acre reservoir is the largest impoundment in PA, and boasts healthy populations of bass, crappie, walleye, muskie, perch, catfish and sunfish. There is a 20-hp limit for watercraft, so the boat traffic is quite placid. Making it very relaxing for fishing. Kayaks and canoes are ideal here, as well as boats powered by electric motors. When fishing from a boat, fishing licenses issued by either OH or PA are valid. Shoreline anglers are required to hold a license for the state in which they are standing. Submerged brush and vegetation is a magnet to baitfish, which attracts the bass, crappie and other species.
