Ken with leopard rainbow

This is a typical Alagnak Alaskan leopard rainbow.  Somewhat like the monster trout stocked by DE this year.  This wild fish was 24" and fell for an articulated leach about 5" long. 

The WCC is still fishing well and a mixed bag of fish are still available.  Sorry these leopards only live in a few special drainages in the world.

I have returned from another trip of a lifetime to Alaska, fishing for Leopard Rainbow Trout on the wilderness Alagnak River.  The fishing was great with a mix of rainbows, grayling and lake trout providing the "pull".  Once the pix are sorted I will post a few to let you see what you can experience on a future trip next year if you can see to it to accompany me.

I fished the White Clay Creek in PA this morning, in my new favorite stretch.  I caught a brace of trout on a size 18 elk hair caddis and a sz 10 crane fly adult.  Mixed in were a few red eyed rock and one smallie. A good morning before the lightning chased me off the water.

You may have noticed that the page headers of the site now say: Delaware Flyfishing - Something New coming soon.  Stay tuned to the blog for update on plans for the new shop location.,  Till then you can reach me at 610 999-9897 or PO Box 166 Kemblesville PA 19347 or here on the site.

I fished the Brodheads this weekend while attending a wedding in the Poconos.  I also took a few minutes last night to fish the WCC in PA just before dark.  I may have a little time with the shop closing to fish the evening hatch and I will report what's happening as I experience that.  Last night, a combo hatch, caddis and trico event.  I was able to land two rainbows, one on each offering.

The White Clay Creek in DE & PA continues to fish really well in certain sections that are holding many fish.  Some recent reports indicated that  these fishers were not even seeing fish, yet this morning produced four fish over 20" taken on caddis emergers and green elk hair caddis size 16 for me.

Time to act steathy and fish the rocks.

I got chased off the White Clay Creek by a rain cell with lightning this morning.  A brace of fish fell for a caddis emerger (size 6) - olive and caddis green early morning.  Many of the DE stockers are showing up in the lower portion of the main stem in PA.

The White Clay Creek is suffering from some flooding from the steady rain we are experiencing.  Try fishing a streamer near the bank if you are going to give it a try under these conditions.  Two fishers reported some limited success with a yellow dyed hornberg.

The latest reports indicate that the shad are still biting in Deer Creek and venues near the mouth and a 40 min walk from the pumping station are hot spots.  Trout in the WCC are eating naturals with midges  and caddis dries producing the most fish. A late afternoon report indicated that maybe some sulfurs have emerged.  Waiting to see the results of some sampling to confirm that.

Big fish are still dominating the DE scene, but small flies seem to be the ticket for catching these monsters.  Black zebra midge with clear bead head or all tan midge are effective.  Dries are also working with tan and gray caddis adults (size 14/16) getting a good bit of attention.  Skitter the caddis just as it drags to extend your drift and watch out for some explosive strikes.

Anglers fishing White Clay Creek are continuing to have exceptional catchies of 20 plus inch fish in the flyfishing and bait sections of the creek.  Try the section below Wedgewood road, which is getting very little pressure and was well stocked with big fish.
