Pennsylvania's musky fishing is on the rise due to new stocking practices, and several of our lakes in the Northwest corner are really producing! With multi-fish days being common, and the chance at catching a real monster, Pa is no longer being overlooked as a musky state.
One of Captain Brian's favorite times of year to fish is in the spring months and late into the fall, when fish are at their heaviest!! With little to no natural reproduction and Pennsylvania's "no closed" season, anglers can start their musky season off early and target these giants year round.
The Beast of the East!!! What else needs to be said about Chautauqua Lake? A natural kettle lake roughly 13,000 acres in size, depths up to 75 foot, this lake is a musky factory!! The Chautauqua musky season doesn't open until the 4th Saturday in May (to protect the spawning fish) and is closed on December 1st.
Whether casting, trolling, or jigging, this lake offers anglers some of the best musky fishing the United States has to offer for not only numbers, but some very large muskies!!
