4/11/16…..What’s up weather?!

We are having a fantastic fishing year!  Hope you can come up and experience it!

The creeks are all in great shape….low for this time of year….but perfect for fishing!

HATCHES:  Blue Wing Olives, small tan caddis, Hendricksons, quill Gordons, blue quills, crane flies and midges. We have had rising fish almost every day, even in the colder weather. The nymphing has been bonkers!

We are waiting on the arrival of the Grannom Caddis any day now…..!
I would like to take a minute to thank Mitch, Matt and Aston for all their help!  If you ever want to experience what Central PA has to off with an true expert…..these guides are INCREDIBLE!!

Don’t believe me?…..if you get skunked…..we will take you again for FREE!!
Here’s David….went out with Mitch and caught a pile of fish with a bamboo rod created by LJ Downes that he was trying out…..great job guys!

August 15….nice

Ello’. How are you? I’m good. Things here are nice. Water is real good. Hatches are Slate Drakes and crane flies and tan caddis and tricos. Levels are good and temps are real cold. Morning Penns temp was 59 today!

Shout out to Astin for really getting it done in TX! You can’t win them all, but that’s pretty good!
