    I grew up in Williamsport and lived there for almost 20 years. Some good catfishing all around on the river and area lakes.

    I hear the "cannon hole" behind the Montoursville airport is prime muskie/pike fishing and behind the F&S lumber mill on 220 is a trophy catfish spot. Maybe i'll check em' out!

    Yup, the cannon hole is a real good spot, especially for musky. Don't forget just downstream from the dam at Hepburn Street. Although you can't get to it now, the Williamsport side of the river at the dam gave up a lot of big channel cats over the years. (At least the last time I was up to visit my parents in Wmspt, they had the Wmspt side of the dam blocked off).

    If you want a lot of fun and don't mind catching a ton of bullheads, the "gut" at the Arch St bridge on the S Wmspt side of the river is good for a ton of night fishing fun for bullheads.

    Rose Valley Lake has some good catfishing as does Sayers.

    Glad you had fun! The gut can be a good time for sure.
