Water conditions on the White Clay Creek a Delaware River in DE and PA have not changed much even with some rain water. Still low and clear and near its low flow in a decade.  But the trout are in there, and very spooky and harder to catch than most other times of the year.  Ant pattern worked today.  Black and red.

I have walked the creek all week and very low water flow can be observed.  There are a few few fish in the holes that you find along the entire creek.

Fished the White Clay Creek in Delaware and PA to find a surprise.  For me and the trout. Cicada.  If you have a pattern for one about two inches long with some green/brown mottling, Like a large muddler with wings, you'll have the ticket.  Very seasonal here.

For those who use the net - the USGS data for Strickersville monitoring now shows turbidity - how cloudy the water appears at the monitoring station.  You'll see that the creek cleans up very quickly after a rain event.  I get a lot of questions about that and now it is available to anyone who can surf to that web site.

Spent a few hours on the White Clay Creek, a Delaware River in DE and PA today.  The water is still low and the temp this morning was 73 degrees, slightly cooler than a few days ago.  The fish were bunched up in a few holes.  I fished the low broken water in a lot of spots today.  A nice mix of smallmouth and trout were caught.  Best fly was a size 14 sulfur dryfly.  More floatsum and trash evident from the past few storms.

After a small spike in flow from the overnight rain on Tues the water is back to low summer flow. I fished the deepest section of the White Clay Creek and surveyed a few other areas today.  A few other fishers were trying their luck today in the London Tract Bridge area.  Some smallmouth bass took a muddler minnow fished on the bottom and I was able to catch two rainbows on a new CDC pattern - size 14 yellow sallie.

More walking and observation of the WCC in the Preserve but no fishing today.  Lots of overgrowth and access is limited in some areas because of this.  The heron seems "fit". so the fishing must still be okay.

New comforts on the WCC - a love seat -  now not blocking the London Tract Bridge pull out north of the bridge.  Water is very low.  We badly need showers forecasted for this weekend.  Water temp too high to fish. It's stressful enough staying away from the egret and crane.

The WCC creek is running very low and clear and some fish were visible in a few deeper holes.  The water temp in two knee deep spots was 74 degrees.  That's right about where the fish really are temp stressed.  I decided not to fish today and hope to report better conditions over the next few days if we see the stormy rainy weather as forecasted.
