    Hey Guys...

    There is a good possibility that I will be living in the Wyomissing area for 8 weeks this summer (June-Aug) and I was wondering what the catfishing is like in the area---interested mostly in flatheads. It is not set yet (school related, so it might fall through), but I wanted to get an idea of the area ahead of time.

    Any brothers up there want to go fishin'? :cool2::cool2:

    I haven't heard anything about flatts in the reading area, but i'm suer that there is a few up here though. I have called all the bait shops in the area and asked them if they know, but they don't have any answers. I haven't really heard of anybody fishing for them up in the reading are either, so lets just say they could or could not be here. I just don't know. Time on the water will tell.

    There are some flats in Blue marsh and very few in the river in this area. If you come here, e-mail me and maybe we can get together and I can put you on are not so big cats here.

    Alex you'd be better off driving back down to your spots on the weekends or days off to get good cat action although a town called Monocacy there was a confirmed flat catch in 04 according to Game commission but there are flats in Blue Marsh you don't hear about anyone catching any:confused2:

    I dont know about that area but good luck finding them. I wish the PFBC would shock the water in more areas and confirm the average fish size more often in more places
