Muddy Creek

This month our featured fishery could be looked at as part of Lake Arthur in Moraine State Park. However we believe that Muddy Creek, the tail waters of the Lake Arthur Dam, deserve to be classified as its own fishery. The tail waters stretch from the Lake Arthur Dam until it runs into Slippery Rock Creek. It can be difficult to fish, but if you can deal with hiking and working to get through brush you can find some really nice areas to fish.

Some of the species that you will find in Muddy Creek include: walleye, crappie, bluegill, largemouth bass, northern pike, and muskellunge. Near the tail waters you will find that there are gizzard shad. These are often the target of the trophy muskellunge. Just because this in not a large fishery don’t assume that the fish are not going to be big. You may not catch a bunch of fish, but you will catch quality fish. Walleye over 20 inches are common and 40 inch muskellunge are common as well.

Time of year should determine how you fish and the size of lures that you use. In the winter the best rig to use is a single hook a small split shot and a medium fathead minnow. This will catch every species swimming in the creek, especially the muskellunge and northern pike. Once the water begins to warm up in the spring larger lures. Spinnerbaits, stick baits, buzzbaits and frogs are all good options. For bass brings you jigs and trailers and you will not be disappointed.

Another Good Finish

KBBC MoraineThe second Keystone Bass Buddy Event (KBBC) was held this past Saturday on Lake Arthur. Dad and I came in with the points lead because we won the first event. We were just hoping not to give up any ground and get another top 10 finish. The ice had been off for a week and the water was much warmer than I had expected but the fish still were not eating actively.

Friday I had practice from 6:00 until 1:30 and decided that I would do more scanning, temperature reading, and checking water conditions than actually fishing. After searching for a while I decided that I would fish certain area and see if I could get bit on soft plastics so that I could not hook the fish. People are thinking to themselves isn’t that the point of fishing to catch the fish. My answer is not the day before the tournament. All I need to know is that they are in the area and I will come back the next day and work the area hard. Needless to say I found a really good area that I was getting a bunch of hits and 2 other areas that I felt I could get 1 or 2 keepers from.

Tournament day we went straight to my good area. We fished that area until 1:30 and never caught a keeper bass. The only fish we were able to catch were a few short bass and 3 large stripers. We made a move and caught 2 keepers in my secondary spot. Had we been smart we probably should have worked the area back and forth trying to get more, but my head got in the way and we went to my other spot to finish out the day and never caught another fish. When we got back to check-in we were shocked to hear that everyone had struggle except for a couple of guys. Our two keepers ended up weighing 4.79lbs and would give us an eighth place finish. That good finish also allowed us to put a little more distance in the team of the year race standings. Now we have a 9 point lead heading into 2 events at our favorite lake to fish. With any amount of luck we will add to our points lead.
