    Strip Pits?

    Hey I'm trying to find some local strip pits from Carbondale to Harrisburg, obviously I don't want to be trespassing so does anyone know of any public strip pits that have fish? I'd really appreciate any locations, Thanks.

    Not strip pits, but Devil's Kitchen( access sticker required), Ceder lake, Or Kinkaid all should be good for a start. Mabe Marion resovoir, I've been kayaking at Arrowhead in Johnston City. All good fishing in the area that You specified.

    I wouldn't take a kayak out on open water on Rend Lake. I've been out there in 2-3' swells, and get a rogue wave from another boat going by, you can get swamped in a hurry.

    I was referring to the coves and north end of Rend. It was nice out on the lake this morning.
