Site maintenance issues seem to be completed here, so here is a recap for the last two weeks.  My friend Rich M and I saw some top water action the week of 2/6 on a yellow body elk hair caddis size 16/18 on one of the warmer mornings, after the sun was on the water for about an hour. I have seen midges hatching almost every outing.  They appear to be size 24/26 so fishing an imitation for me is mute.  The best nymph pattern has been a cased caddis brown body with green thorax and brown thread head size 14/16 dragged on the bottom.  A number of fish seem pressured as they inspect and refuse many nymph I have offered.  I give each a second cast to reject and if ignored, I change patterns.  The caddis nymph and a caddis emerger has been the best pattern.  Joe A's  pattern wet fly  has been a winner too.  Must look like that rising caddis.  The state of PA had ...

Some of the blog entries from last week were deleted in maintenance to the site so I will provide a "catch-up" report today.  My friend Dick P and I saw a number of big fish during a few outings last week during that warm spell. We also saw crowded conditions and some rude fishers low holeing.  Fair weather fishers have been taking advantage of the nice weather for sure.  Best patterns continue to be golden retriever, gr hares ear size 16 and brown/tan elk hair caddis adult  size 18. Target those rocky areas for your best chance at those fish not in obvious feeding lanes.  I saw my friend Bob C and his buddy coming off the stream as we entered and reports of nice catches on pheasant tails size 18 were shared.  White buggeers are also reported to be productive.
