6/3/20…..A beautiful DRAKE in the Neighborhood

Good Morning!

The GREEN DRAKE swarm is surrounding Poe Paddy State park

There are Coffin Flies brown in the Cherry Run area still and some Duns popping all the way up to Coburn too!

The hot days will explode the hatch up the rest of the creek soon and they will last through the weekend and a trickle into next week and that will about finish them for 2020.

Still So Many other bugs hatching too! Cahills and Slate Drakes and Sulphurs and Caddis and March Browns and Grey Fox and Crane Flies and more!

Hope to get to see you soon!

5/29/2020….Pleasantly Surprised!

When I woke up and saw the graph this morning, I assumed we were Done! Gratefully….upon seeing the water this morning and the fishes rising in it….we are far from it!

The storm must have gotten much worse far down below us….a rare but important occurrence. Please remember the hydrograph is 30 miles down stream.

The GREEN DRAKES are coming off here in UPPER Coburn this morning. They were also heavy on the lower river last night….from roughly Millmont to Weikert.

The creek is dropping fast…as happens with thunderstorms.

Pictures from this morning….

5/28/2020…..Be Water My Friends

The Green Drakes have started way down stream! It is So Exciting!

We have seen them as far up as Weikert. The numbers are not heavy yet and it is mostly males but it is a START!

The other Hatches continue to be ridiculously thick….and as you would expect…..Penns Creek is still quite hard!

Water temps stayed steady yesterday at 64.

Here’s a couple of pictures if you aren’t here yet…

1.31.2020….not that cold

Another week has come and gone with above average air temps. Penns is running just over average flows and holding that “Penns Creek Green” color.

Even with February knocking on our door, the future forecast looks like the end of March/start of April rather than the first week of February…not that we are complaining.

Not having to brave freezing temps and iced up guides has made this winters fishing that much more enjoyable..

Stonefly nymphs, caddis pupa, baetis nymphs and midges continue to be consistent fish producers. A stripped or swung streamer has also been putting its share of fish in the net.

We are super excited for the Extravaganza this year. More talks and demos to be announced soon.
