Monday, May 23 -- Weekly Fishing Report for Minersville Reservoir

The water temp. has gone up to 61-62 deg. this past week. The peaks of the Beaver (Tushar) Mts are covered with new snow and a few warm days have started it to melt. The upstream reservoirs must be full, because there is a good flow coming into Minersville.

The "smallies" are finding nests to lay eggs. Wipers are cruising the shoreline in the dam area.
The trout have pulled off the banks into deeper water. The float tubers are catching a few trout in the dam area but the bite really slows down in the afternoon. Get out early before the wind comes up.

A friend fishing next to me in his tube, hooked a fish that took him deep into his backing. The fish turned and made a run back toward us. On the slack line, he lost the fish. It looked like he might have hooked into a big wiper.

Good fishing.
