Minersville

Rating - Fair   

Saturday, Jan 14 2023
Fishing forecast (December through February): During cold winters, Minersville Reservoir can cap with safe ice (up to 12 inches) and provide fair to good ice fishing for rainbow trout. Marabou jigs and jigging spoons often work best since bait and scented soft plastics are not allowed. During mild winters, however, the ice can be unsafe and large patches of open water can be present. Open water fishing from shore or tubes can be effective for trout with various flies, lures and jigs. Smallmouth bass and wipers are less active during the winter.

Weather Report

Minersville Weather

Access Info

Trout fishing should start to improve with cooling water temperatures. Some trout can be caught trolling in deep water. Also look for hatches in the early morning and late evening. Smallmouth bass are active and can be caught on crayfish-imitating tackle. Wipers are most active at sunup or sundown and can be caught trolling or casting topwater lures. Wipers are also doing fantastic, with 4- to 6-pound fish abundant. We also saw a few larger wipers, up to 8 pounds.
