Fishing Tips for Conowingo Dam

Conowingo Dam is a great place to fish year round. No matter what time of year you can expect to find at least a few fish under the dam. Ususally you can expect the walleyes to come around in Nov/Dec and are great eating. In March/April the Perch and Shad move up. May/June brings catfish and carp. And July/-Oct sees Rockfish. You can also find species like panfish, catfish, bass, and even muskies under the dam year round. This can be a tricky fishery to figure out but once you do it's amazing. There is no easy way to learn this fishery so you just have to go out and try different things. Asking other anglers or local bait shops will help but in the end you need to learn where the fish are. Most people use surf rod with about 3-4 oz weight with 12-18 inch leaders with some sort of bait or lure attached to that The biggest factor to fishing here are the water releases from the dam which can be dangerous if you are stupid. I recommend calling the hotline 888-457-4076 to find out what there're plan is for the day you are going to be fishing. Good Luck Fishing!
