It’s been one screwed up spring. And while I’m not making any predictions, the 10 day forecast isn’t all that promising about a turn-around in the weather. While it has been great for Erie steelhead spring run and Pymatuning shallow night walleye bite, it’s been up and down on other species. Alleghe-ny River smallies are on fire one day and then the river gets blown out the next day Crap-pies biting one day at Pymie but not the next. Bass bite at Pymie way behind schedule. Lack of consistent improvement to spring weather patterns plays havoc with fishing plans. But when it comes to Mother Nature, we can on-ly take what we get and make the best of it.
