    Wow I had never even heard about this place until I saw this post. I'm in. Looks like a good spot for some slow streamer fly fishing

    It has a good pickerel population.

    They'll hit wooly buggers and Clousers all year and poppers in the warm months.

    I'm glad you can join us.

    I did a quick google search for Unicorn Lake and came up with the small "puddle" at the end of Groff Road, that probably can't fit more than two yakk's! (and doesnt have a ramp/launch)

    GPS Lat / Long for the correct location are 39.247183, -75.859714

    Your driving directions are spot-on!
