Fishing Overview

Spring has good flows and color, heavy rain (not forecasted) today may lead to a blowout. Have a little blaze orange on if you're out in the woods this weekend, rifle season is open in Pennsylvania until December 9th. Olives have been sporadic on cloudy days, with colder temps moving in don't expect much dry fly action. Nymphing should provide the best daytime action, small baetis nymphs have produced well. Now's the time of year to look out for redds. Fish are spawning so please do not target actively spawning fish.

General Info

Specific Tips

Fish are still spawning, most have, some will in the coming week or so. Continue to be vigilant of redds and spawning fish. With the water up look for fish feeding at the heads of pools and deeper runs. Tossing a streamer isn't a bad idea. Getting to the time of year when some sun on the water will bump up the temperature. Sometimes only two or three degrees makes a difference.
