Fish on 17,088-acre Pymatuning Lake — Pennsylvania’s largest inland lake — with its reputation for producing exceptional fishing for crappies, walleyes, bass, musky, and channel catfish. Offering cabins, campgrounds, beaches, and boat rentals, Pymatuning State Park is a family-friendly vacation destination.
Only a few miles to the east is 925-acre Conneaut Lake, a glacier-formed clear water natural lake that has given up four state-record white bass and the largest toothy critter ever caught in the state, a 54-pound musky. Today, Conneaut supports strong populations of bass, pike, and crappies, as well as some of the biggest bluegills in the region.
Discover the treasure of smallmouth bass and walleye during a kayak float or wade-fish outing on pastoral French Creek. And, musky hunters should not overlook two smaller gems: Woodcock Creek Lake and Canadohta Lake.
