Receive a number of reports from fishers working the DE fly fishing section as well as the creek below Hopkins Road.  Everyone is reporting catching fish.  Many of the reports indicated brown trout being  caught on PT nymphs and small white streamers.  Ed O'D reported that the green weenie is still productive for both trout and panfish.  Art C reported catching a good sized (5 lb.) carp near the Hopkins road bridge.  Two reports from a member of the WCFF indicated that the fishing in the Brandywine has also been "very good" with a mixed bag of fish being caught on nymph and midge dropper rigs.  One report from a MD fisher that the Big Elk is loaded with panfish.

Fished my favorite section of the White Clay Creek, a Delaware River in the PA preserve below London tract bridge this morning.  The fishing was outstanding with a number of browns, rainbows and pan fish taken on a beaver nymph, glass bead midge dropper setup.  The water temp was 66 this morning. Conditions on the creek have kept it holding a good number of fish while putting a smile on my face every time out.  Put in some time on the WCC and you will also be rewarded .

I have been working the top of DE flyfishing section and the rocky section extending into the PA preserve. It  was been productive for small mouth bass today and continues to produce some bass in the "mid teens" in length..  A lot of them have been hitting a beaver nymph dead drifted along the rocky ledges.  A brace of browns was fooled by a grey ghost streamer size 4.  Water temp was 67 degrees this morning at 7:30 am.

Water temp was 68 degrees this morning and the fish in the Delayed Harvest section of the White Clay Creek in the PA preerve were interested in almost any nymph fished on the bottom.  Mostly browns caught and a few red eyed rock mixed in.

I am surprised that the White Clay Creek. a Delaware River in PA has been so turbid after small storms this past week.  I fished a shiney streamer today and found a few small mouth bass interested.  If you want to feel where the stream is fed by springs, now is the time to wet wade.  You'll find them rather easily.  The White Clay Fly fishers have a fun outing this Sat at Hybernia Park in  Coatesville.  Stop by and join us for a day on Chambers Lake.

Got caught in the downpour this morning on the White Clay Creek, a Delaware River in PA.  I haven't been out for the last two weeks due to family vacation in NC, so I was really just trying to get a look at the summerlike conditions of the creek.  I am prone to avoid targetting trout in the dog days, so I trucked to the PA/DE line to search the rocky locations there for smallies.  After a good soaking I can only comment that I saw a number of fish landing only one small bass.  Back to regular daily fishing on the creek now that I am home, so watch for the reports.
