Spent the early morning fishing Deer Creek in MD for shad.  I do this every year while the trout streams in our area get "begining of the season" pressure.  The water is slowly receeding from the early week flooding and although the creek was running faster than I would normally feel safe, the fish draw me to the creek.  This fishing is good practice for hook setting, as the shad are light biters.  They also jump and are very fair game for a light weight rod.  Time to do it before they head back out to sea.

I can't remember when the trout fishing on the White Clay Creek, a Delaware River in the PA Preserve has been this good.  Seems like the stocking has made our home water as good as any western river.  Some of the trout today were trophy size and they are biting a combination of caddis nymphs, crane fly larvae and midges.  Just a note.  I caught a few crane fly larvae this past week and to my surprise they were not tan with brown heads, but vary dark gray with black heads.  A few minutes at the tying vise filled my box with the "newer" version and I actually caught two nice browns on the new version today.
