It’s been a long time since we have seen the numbers of rising fish on Penns Creek that we are seeing the last few nights…..finally!
They are eating bug soup which includes but I am sure is not limited to:
Yellow and orange Sulphurs
Big and little Blue Wing Olives
Small tan Caddis
Big black Caddis
And the Spinners of all these bugs!
It has been crazy and wonderful.
The creek looks the best it has in recent memory….hope you can come up.
And now….fish pics.

We dodged it! The heavily forecasted rains missed us.
Honest truth: We did get rain. The creek is BROWN. Fish are eating.
Levels are not off the chart. Creek is slightly bumping with the run off from last nights rains.
By this afternoon/evening the creek should have improved clarity. Again, IT WILL BE BROWN but we should see improving clarity as the day progresses.
Drake’s are almost hatching entirely through the system in numbers. Reports of hatching bugs through the day, increasing in numbers closer to evening with fish getting up on them!!

We had rain yesterday but the creek did not come up much…however she is colored up currently.
Having said that…the fish are rising as I type here at the bridge.
If it follows the recent pattern….the color will wash through in the next few hours.
The Main Hatch of Drakes is down below Weikert and has also started in Coburn ABOVE the junction with Elk and Pine.
Hope we see you soon!

The Green Drakes are just getting started way down stream around Millmont.
It is Just Starting for sure and the creek is in the best shape it’s been in for awhile.
Penns is running 733CFS and 3.13ft. Color is green and the bugs and fish seem to be ready to go.
Blue Wing Olives
Hope you can make it up and enjoy the experience…..
