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…

With the warm weather comes the GREEN DRAKES…..
They are just beginning at the very lower end….but it is time to make your plans!
The weather will be hot for a couple days and then it is going to cool down which means we will have a nice prolonged hatch I think (I am no entomologist)
The water is a little low and quite clear
March Browns and Sulphurs and Caddis and Crane Flies and Grey Fox…Oh My!
So Much Bugs!
We are open 9 – 5 every day
Hope to see you soon!
Getting it done!

I want to thank everyone for all the support during these strange and troubling time!
Life in the shop is kinda the same as usual and kinda completely weird…..
But life on the stream is about the same as it’s ever been.
A few more people than normal when the weather is nice but it is late May.
The water levels are near perfect and the hatches have been excellent:
Sulphurs (of assorted sizes and colors)
So much bugs.
We have seen 2 GREEN DRAKES so far…..got to be soon though!
Hope you are all safe and well and we see you soon

The creek is still high from Thursday’s heavy rains but the color has improved nicely. No get but improving.
We have March Browns and a few Sulphurs. Caddis and Crane Flies abound. Blue wing olives and blue duns too
Hope to see y’all soon
