November 11, 2019:
Our first report from the Diamond State came from Steve at Smith Bait and Tackle in Liepsic. Steve said freshwater fishing has been very quiet and the only news to come into his shop was word of some crappies being caught in Garrisons Lake and Silver Lake in Dover. "Most of the fishing has been on jig-plasticbait combos and minnows fished under floats," he said.

    Early week fishing in the Diamond State saw some catches of bass and crappies from Lake Como and Garrison's Lake, according to Steve over at Smith Bait and Tackle in Liepsic. Steve said most of the fishing for bass was on buzzbaits and spinnerbaits. However, since the mid week weather problems fishing has been on the quiet side. "The drop in temperatures over the weekend should cool down the water and should jumpstart some better fishing this week," Steve said.

The only fish weighed in this past week was a 1.1-pound white perch caught by Leonard Williams from the spillway below Garrison's Lake on a minnow.
