Fall Carp On Pine Creek in North Hills of Pittsburgh

 Picked a great early fall day for a Friday afternoon escape on Pine Creek.  I caught and released a few small smallmouth and largemouth bass but hooked into the this reel screamer of a carp.  Danced with this 30 inch creek carp for about 10 minute as it unreeled some line - time after time.  Finally tired it out and beached it - beautiful fish.

Trout on Pine Creek, North Park, Pittsburgh

I spent the day on Pine Creek and played catch and release with two rainbow trout and a smallmouth bass. The recent torrential wet weather created some huge tree downfall which will most likely add more productive fishing holes and deep pockets in the creek.  Should make for a good summer of fishing.

Lure: Black and Yellow Spotted Panther Martin Spinner
