1. Thank you all for your support this year, and always! The Feathered Hook will continue on for the foreseeable future! I am So Grateful
2. It is Hot out! This has been one of those summers you have to be picky about where to trout fish. Penns has been warm and we haven’t had a lot of rain. Fishing creek and lower spring creek are cold still which is great.
3. The Smallmouth fishing has been on Fire! If you haven’t had a chance to go with Matt and drift for Smallies…..I highly recommend it! What a great way to pass the summer and learn some new skills!
We are still open 7 days a week from 9-5. Hope to see you soon

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!

The GREEN DRAKES are going nuts! From Weikert to Cherry Run with some in Poe Paddy too!
The water has settled down after the thunderstorms and is wonderful now
Sulphurs and grey fox and Caddis and crane flies and slate drakes too
It’s that time! Hope to see you soon…..Posted May 31, 2020
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….

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…
