Crawford County, PA Fishing
Pymatuning Lake Park in Crawford County is the largest man-made lake in Pennsylvania. It provides excellent fishing on its beautiful waters. The Spillway at Pymatuning Lake is famous as an area where you can view ducks walking on the backs of 1000's of carp. Over fifty fishing tournaments are held on Pymatuning's waters every year.
Another great fishing area in Crawford County is Conneaut Lake. The area was established as a prime area for hunting and fishing. The lake's name means place of lingering snow in the Iroquois language. That may be true, but Pennsylvania anglers like to think of Conneaut Lake as the place of many fish.

Hotel Conneaut at Conneaut lake park. You see what looks like a little boy. It is not any of my kids. I only had two kids at the time and they were behind me when I come into the hall way. My son is the one saying out, out. He did not want to be in there. No one saw the ghost until we watched the video.
