Central PA – Ditton from last week with the exception of the Lehigh
Penns, Spring and Big Fishing Creek are running above their average flows, but not by much. This is good news as compared to the past three years. Mountain stream, brook trout, fishing is good and a great option during the day.
Spring and Big Fishing Creek are just fine. Look for Caddis, BWO and start throwing crawling bugs.
Upper central PA, Big Pine, Little Pine, Young Womens, Sinnemahoning and Kettle just fine.
Hatches: Slate Drake, Caddis, some Sulphurs and many legged creatures.
Lehigh, we have switched over to Bass on the Juniata and Susquehanna. Trout fishing in the gorge is good. Watch your wading, not easy.
Tulpehocken Creek is at boarder line at, 300cfs, BUT water release from the dam is 70 degrees, not good. Boy I miss the good old days on the Tully.
The Manatawny was up again yesterday , but should be fine today. Work the water with a bugger.
Caddis, Slate Drakes and small nymphs
Susquehanna river are in good shape with the Juniata up from the storms last night, It’s nice to have options and both have been fishing good with streamer and top water, your call.
And, here is a story from Michael Lohman who teaches fly fishing classes here at Mainstream of his and a friend’s experience fishing the Susquehanna this past Saturday.
This past Saturday I met a good friend of mine Jack Fields and another friend Nick Raftas on the Susquehanna for a day of smaillie fishing. Nick is a guide for skyblue outfitters. I had fished with Nick before and knew we would have a good day. The fish were hungry. Jack and I caught a bunch of fish. And a lot of larger fish. They seemed to average between 17″ and 19″ all healthy and fat fish. Nick is a great guide and a lot of fun to fish with. He works very hard and gives you a nice long day of fishing for a very fair rate. I would highly recommend you book a day or 2 and have a blast catching some of these great fish.
