Pair of Pittsburgh Rainbow Trout Opens 2015 Fishing Season

Well the 2015 fishing season is underway.  I stayed away from the madness of the opening day crowds and decided to fish the following weekend.  I hooked into a couple of nice rainbow trout in Pine Creek in the North Hills of Pittsburgh at North Park.  Just floated some whole night-crawlers into a few log jams along the Pine Creek off of Wildwood Road for an hour or two and caught and released the two rainbow trout below. 

Friendly note to those that fish the North Hills:  Please pack out your trash, worm containers, cans and bottles.  I did see a lot of residual waste from opening day on the banks of the creek.  Take care of the creek and it will take care of you!
