The size of a large trout stream, this stretch of the river runs north for over 100 miles, from Pennsylvania to its lower falls in Rochester. This stream is mostly known for its cold water stretching from the Pennsylvania border downstream for about 16 miles to the Belmont Dam. Each year the state stocks about 5,400 rainbows averaging 9 inches, 20,000 browns averaging 8.5 inches, and about 2,500 two-year-old browns averaging 13.5 inches into this stretch. Worms, salted minnows, and small spoons and spinners catch most fish early in the season, while flies work best in summer. The vast majority of the river is warm-water habitat, populated primarily by smallmouths ranging from too small to 16 inches. Key species: Brown trout, rainbow trout, smallmouth bass, northern pike, walleye, bluegill, rock bass, and bullhead
