Im kinda new to catfishing. I started two years ago ,and I cant even get the thought of catfish out of my head now. I dont have many lakes I fish with a lot of catfish in them. Im looking to spend my summer expirimenting with a buch of lakes, and rivers after I graduate this year. So could anyone tell me were some good lakes are near blair and cambria county? I live right in the middle of the two countys.

Josh welcome to the BOC :0a25:About the closest thing in our area would either be Raystown lake. I've done a little good up around Weaver's bridge. Or the north end of Wilmore dam between Munster and Portage. Ive caught some nice bullheads and some channels in the 15 -18" range there. I like to head up to the Allegheny River around the Kittanning area. Maybe we can hook up for a trip this summer.

Chris, I've never tried Duman because it's always loaded down with trout fishermen. I know pacatchaser has done some ice fishing there.
I've ice fished Duman several times. Very nice little lake. I couldn't tell you though if it holds any cats. Through the ice we caught Trout & Panfish and also the one & only Chain Pickerel I've ever caught! :big_smile:

Dan, how did you do at Wilmore? I haven't fished there this year yet, but have done fair on channel cats there in the past. The best place for cats is the northern end that you get to by going down Patrick road near Munster. I'll caution you though, if you don't have 4WD it's rough the last 1/2 mile down to the lake. I'm hoping they run a road grader down there sometime soon. The fish warden that hangs out down by the breast told me that he saw 2 - 30" channels come out of the lake. I know that there is at least one that was 36" two years ago because I released it into the lake. We won't talk about where it came from. :wink:
