Night Fishing at the Youghiogheny Reservoir

Type: Freshwater
Region: Western
Location: Youghiogheny Reservoir

My son Kyle’s summer vacation was coming to an end – and one thing he wanted to do was to catch a channel catfish before heading back to school. We night-fished the Youghiogheny Reservoir near Mill Run and had an awesome night. Kyle landed his first channel catfish ever – and a respectable one indeed. He ended up catching three large channel cats (24 – 28 inches), and it was a blast watching him fight these fish on light tackle! He also caught his first yellow bullhead – a nice 13 inch specimen!
