9.0 in. White Bass caught by Henry V fishing in Pennsylvania on 07/05/12
9.0" White Bass caught by Henry V fishing on Thursday July 05, 2012 at 11:00 near Cheswick in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania (PA), United States North America

I spent a few days in my old haunts on the Allegheny River, sweating and fishing in the merciless heat. The fishing was slow but consistent and we found great species diversity but little quality in term of fish size. The big ones dig deep when the water is this hot. We landed 8 different species of fish, including Smallmouth Bass, Sauger, Rock bass, White bass, LM Bass, catfish, Spotted Gar and bluegill. I also saw two Muskies, but couldn't make them bite.

Here's one of several White Bass I caught below the Lock 3 dam. The fish were schooling and chasing balls of bait at the surface. You had to pay close attention and react quickly when they started blitzing fish, because they only stayed at the surface for 5-10 seconds. regardless, if you were ready, you could catch 1-2 every time they attacked. The fishing here was the best along the river because of the current and oxygenated water. Unfortunately, I missed a tour of Rachel Carson's family's house (she was raised in nearby Springdale) a few days later.
