The White Clay Creek was a winter wonderland this afternoon...actually it was just plain cold, and the fish were not very cooperative either.  Saw a nice bunch of fish but was only able to catch one, on a beaver nymph fished right on the bottom.  I used a 6 wt rod today and I was under matched to the wind.  Maybe I will see you on Sat opening day on the Ocotoro Creek at the WCFF first outing.

Plenty of fish were showing today and the streamer fished with a down and across presentation was the ticket.  Sz 12 edson tiger dark was the streamer of choice, although a few fish were landed on a gray ghost sz 10.

You only have days like this very rarely as the White Clay Creek, a Delaware River in PA gave up all its secrets today.  The fish were very hungary and tasted every fly that was presented.  Too bad I didn't have a nooby with me today as it would have been a great outing for a begining fisher.

The water on the White Clay Creek is still running cold at 40 degrees but the fish were feeding on midges today.  Both a sz 20 zebra midge an a white clay creek midge size 18 were attractive to the browns today.

Will Milliken will be presenting his talk on entamology in the WCC tonight at the London Tract Meeting House at the junction of London Tract and SouthMill Rds at 7:00 pm....thats tonight.  Will is very knowledgeable and his presentation is choked full of good info about the bugs and flies that imitate them.  Open to the public.  You should think about joining the White Clay Fly Fishers if you come out, and take advantage of all the opportunities to meet some nice people who are members and plan to fish outings planned for this spring.

The nice weather early in the season seems to find extra fishers on the stream and by the looks of the London tract parking lot too many cars meant I would have to find another spot to fish today.  I tried the Sharpless Rd location but it too had fishers and dogs on the creek.

Maybe tomorrow will provide a better opportunity.  I hope the fishing was great for those out today.  I would love to hear about some other success. flies, or good info..

Spent part of the morning loading and unloading library materials and got a chance to fish mid day.  The edges were slippery from the snow melt and after the last outing I was extra careful getting in and out of the White Clay Creek, a Delaware River in PA south of Good Hope Rd.  I fished the rock pile half way to London Tract Road and had a pretty good day drifting eggs and midges under a dry fly.  The fish were stacked up and feeding on something smaller than my capture netting.  The water was 41 degrees and the fish caught were very healthy and brightly colored.

The fishing was good today.  I had four fish in the first 20 minutes fishing under the Good Hope Rd bridge and the pool below.  I continued to fish down to the big rock and landed at least three more fish before I took a header, got rather wet and walked back to the car, pretty embarrased. Granted no one was there to see me, but i was not happy with my performance.  I am the guy who always preaches being careful and using precaution, and today I was careless.
