The White Clay Creek in PA delayed harvest section gets a supplimental winter stocking later this winter thanks to the members and friends of the White Clay Fly Fishers generosity buying raffle tickets that support this stocking.  Congrads to the winners - (all of us for the opportunity to see more fish in the stream), but to Rick D and Ed G who won the prizes.

Fly selection in the winter months are a matter of preference.  Some feel that the fish slow down in the cold water condition, and that a small fly (midge) is your best choice.  Others like myself feel that a mouthful is a better offering and fishing streamers (bait fish imitations) is a better choice.  So today I fished a very difficult combination of a midge dropper and a point streamer.  Since I caught two fish, one on each offering, your preference, based on todays result, are a toss up.  Happy Holidays to all.

If you follow this blog you know that the White Clay Fly Fishers do a supplimentary winter stocking of the White Clay Creek in the Preserve delayed harvest section late in Dec for the past few years. Money for this stocking comes from a raffle ($5.00ea. or 5 for $20.00) ticket purchases.  They are available from EP Outfitters in Hockesin and A Marblehead fly fisher in Centerville.  Sales have been a bit slow this year so if you want to have additional fish available for winter fly fishing, please get out to the shops and support the effort.  Prizes include a Sage "One" rod valued about $700 (nice!) , and a second prize - a new style fanny pack.

The White Clay Creek water levels peaked over 2000cfs last night and caused some flooding conditions today.  I checked the creek at the three PA bridges this morning and there will be some new "holes" created by the water flows. More when the the creek will be fishable tomorrow.

I received a few weekend reports that the fishng on the White Clay Creek, a Delaware River in DE and PA was quite slow. A number of fishers gave it a try and no one reporting to me,  caught or saw a fish.  Surprising, since I was able to catch three nice trout this morning.  As the winter approaches so does the way you need to approach this fishery.  I have been using large size 4 & 2 streamers for most of the fall.  Others who I have spoken with tell me that midges, especially black zebra midges size 20 are working for them.  Since midging the creek is too intense for me, I like to swing those streamers in snaggy looking spots on the creek, which are recently more numerous in the PA section of the preserve.

Got off the stream in time for the downpour yesterday and today its wind.  Cold windy conditions call for those fingerless gloves and keeping that wet fly line off your hands.  Releasing the fish is another story, so wet hands are required.   You can find some relief from the wind by hunting out those spots where the wind actually helps your cast.  Also keeping your casting low to the water aids in presentation and accuracy on days like today.  I am still fishing streamers - since they are working.  Grey ghost, edson tiger, little brown trout patterns all took a fish today.
