Darl Black (Cochranton); filed 8/17: “Friday afternoon I met Pete Cartwright in Oil Creek State Park for a little fishing on Oil Creek, photos and an interview. Pete did most of the fishing, and all of the catching. Of course he caught the biggest smallmouth before I arrived, but took a photo for the Fishing Report. The fish caught in the Blood Farm area were from very small to about 14 inches, on tubes.” (See Livewell)

Chris Wolfgong (Oil City); filed 8/11: “I took advantage of the nice day and did some wade-fishing. I fished the mouth of Oil Creek and worked up river for about 1-1/2 hours. I caught two fish right off the bat, both about 8 inches. But the river was almost too high for my wading preference. With the slow bite, I moved further up Oil Creek where the water was lower. I fished the Rynd Farm rea for about an hour, catching several more small bass. I tried a handful of different baits, but in the end, the tube worked best.”

Mike Laskowski @ Oil Creek Outfitters; filed 7-21: “Finding decent water level to fish on Oil Creek re-mains a challenge due to ongoing thunderstorms. Creek may be fishable with fly rod one day a week. Last week when water was fishable, guys were getting an equal number of trout and smallmouth bass. This week, things look better if not too much rain on Wednesday.”

Mike @ Oil Creek Outfitters; filed 7/7: “Rain, rain and more rain. Oil Creek has been blown out most of the spring, fishable for fly fishermen about 1 day every two weeks it seems. This is the worst season on Oil Creek that I’ve ever seen. It’s so bad all I can do is laugh about it…and more heavy rain expected this week.”
