The White Clay Creek, a Delaware River in DE and PA is located in the southernmost corner of Chester County in PA.With ample free parking at access points along the creek it is a idealic location for a fly fishing destination.  The fish have been very cooperative since the fall stocking.  I have been catching mostly browns with a few rainbows and some brookies that were stocked in the DE section, has made the fall a wonderful season.  Remember that some areas adjacent to the stream are open to hunting, so wear your hunters orange gear while fishing this fall.

Had an outstanding day fishing the White Clay Fly Fishers outing on the White Clay Creek, a Delaware River in the PA preserve today.  The browns were stacked up and they fell for a leaf hopper fished dry, and an edson tiger dark streamer .  This was the last outing of the year for the WCFF and we had a nice day with lunch and comeraderie.

Fished the WCC. a Delaware River in PA preserve this morning.  The fish were a bit skittish, but quite a few browns came to hand caught on leaf hopper dry flies and brown/black nondiscript nymph patterns.  The water temp was 58 degrees this morning at 8:00 am and was starting to be clogged with the leaf fall.  Remember that the trout use some of those leaf clogs as good overhead cover.  Drift your nymph or streamer under these snaggy spots and you will get surprized more times than not.

Spent the last week on the Salmon River in Pulaski NY fishing with my friend Tom P.  We had a good week fishing the upper fly zone, and the lower papermill sections of the river.  The fish were hot and fresh as they moved to spawn with hens making redds in the cobble.  Best fish was a 28 lb king (measured on a boccagrip).  The fish were breaking 14 lb test so we found that 17 lb tippet would hold them.  Hooked a lot of fish and lost a few dozen egg flies to those fish that were not landed.  The dozen fish landed were mostly kings, with a few coho mixed in.  Only one steelhead and one brown trout landed during the week.

Today the fish were feeding on the surface.  That combined with the first really heavy leaf litter made placing a dry fly a challenge.  I fished a leaf hopper size 14 for most of the morning.  The biggest fish today was a 17" rainbow that ate the leaf hopper fished in among the leaf litter that floated on the surface.  I also caught a nice rainbow that had a black wooly bugger still stuck in his tail fin.  Removed it and released that thankful trout.  More than a dozen fish caught today.  Pretty nice.
