Flyfishing News and Notes

6/1/16……Still fishing the Drakes!

We have some green drake duns coming off in the mornings and lots of Coffin flies late in the evening. 

The Coffin flies have been starting to hit the water around 10 pm because of the heat!  
DONT LEAVE EARLY!
You go girl!

5/28/16…..DRAKE MANIA!

Simply amazing!  The hot weather has driven all the spinner falls and most of the rising fish activities late into the darkness.  10 pm has been the hot time so bring a sandwich and some patience!
Hatches:  GREEN DRAKES and March Browns and sulphurs and blue quills and blue wing olives and crane flies and little tan caddis and the beginning of the Slate drakes and………woo-hoo!
Great fish Adam!

5/24/16…..A glorious year!

The Green Drakes are just below Weikert. The hatch is moving up slowly this year as the water is still cold. 

These hot sunny days make the day time dry fly fishing slow, but the evenings are amazing!

Hatches: GREEN DRAKES and March Browns and sulphurs and blue quills and blue wing olives and crane flies and little tan caddis and the beginning of the Slate drakes and………fantastic!

The creek is in perfect shape!

Nice work Men!

5/23/16…..Penns Creek survives again!!

So the rain did come and the sun is peaking through and the creek is totally dry fly fishible!

The drakes are stretched from Glenn Iron to just about Weikert. 

We are also getting a nice hatch of Green Drakes up stream of Coburn from the shop up to the dam.

The creek has about 3 feet of visibility and with the green drakes on, that is plenty!

Penns has been blessed with great water conditions all year and I couldn’t be happier!

Hatches: GREEN DRAKES!  March Browns and sulphurs and blue quills and blue wing olives and crane flies and little tan caddis and the beginning of the Slate drakes and………WOW!
Here is a real 20″ fish that Aston guided Chris to this week!

5/19/16….An amazing year!

What a year!  Almost everyone coming in the shop is reporting major successes…and mostly dry fly fishing!!

The hatches have been really strong and the fish have been really looking up!

Hatches: March Browns and sulphurs and blue quills and blue wing olives and crane flies and little tan caddis and the beginning of the Slate drakes and………unreal!

Hope you get a chance to come and experience this truly unusual year!
Great job PB!
