Penns creek is in fine condition. The flow is a tad low but water temperatures are great. Elk Creek is coming in at 58 degrees while Upper Penns is coming in at 62 degrees.
Slate drakes, BWO, Slate Drake, Tan Caddis and October Caddis are keeping the fish happy and looking up. Don’t forget about midges.  Always a go to for this time of year.
Our guided trips are continuing to bring in success with things looking up. It seems we are over the hump that is summer and heading for fall fishing!
Be sure to stop in to check out our wide selection of Sitka Gear to ready up for hunting season. These pooches are happy about it!

8.18.2017….Augustember

It is hard to believe we are 3/4 of the way through the year. September is almost here. No complaints on our end.
 Comparing flows to last year, we are way ahead of where we were. Water temps are stable and relatively cool. The trout look much healthier then a year ago.

Day time temps have not been pushing 90. Night time temps have been reaching mid 50s.    Doesn’t quite feel like August but we’ll take it!

Fall Isonychia (Slate Drakes) are getting hot  and heavy.   Most boulders protruding out of the water and along the banks look something like this 

The Isonychia is one of two Mayflies in our stream that is an undulating swimmer, meaning it has the ability to swim upstream. 

They crawl up on the rocks and emerge from their shucks to continue their bugly duty. 

Along with Slate Drakes you can also expect to see BWOs, Blue Quills, Craneflys, Cahills, Yellow Sally’s, and Tricos (in the right location) while on Penns Creek. 


The fly shop continues to be open 7 days a week from 9AM-5PM.

See you in Coburn
