Central Pennsylvania as well as most of the North East was blasted by rain at the end of last week. While our neighbors to the east and west both faced torrential storms and flooding, Penns Valley recieved very little rain. Penns Creek hardly budged at all, while just about every other body of water blew out. Some recovered quicker than others, as some as still on the way down today. The Little J, Spring Creek, and Fishing Creek are all on the rebound and should produce some good fish catching for the next few days. Penns Creek is still running around 50 CFS: very low, slow and clear. Olives and blue quills are hatching on with a variety of caddis and midges on Penns Creek. There are a few slates and October caddis popping off still. Anglers are likely to find rising fish mid morning and mid to later afternoon. Streamer fishing has continues to produce with the agressive,pre-spawn brown trout.
Fall seemed to happen upon us a little bit quicker this year then in the past. The days and nights are generally cooler. The leaves are turning magnificent colors displaying the true beauty of Central Pennsylvania. Whether in the woods, on the water, or just out for a stroll there is beauty to be seen everywhere. The creeks are still running super low and clear. The fish are in are pre-spawn mode and aggressive. Streamer fishing has been effective. Nymphing the riffles and runs has been producing fish with both natural and attractor nymphs. Please do watch your step, and try to avoid walking on the Redds (spawning beds).
