I stopped along Penn's Creek late Monday morning just downstream from Coburn.
Penn's Creek is unusually low and clear for mid-late May. My customers have
informed me that both the Suphurs and March Browns have been hatching well, but
due to the timing of my visit, I saw only a fair amount of tan caddis. Although
the flies were sporadic, there were quite a few small fish that took them. This,
of course, offers a strategy for the angler who prefers to fish the surface. I
chose a Sulphur Nymph trailed by a Bead Head Walt's Worm. I took a small fish
on each one in the short time I allotted to fishing. Penn's should be great
shape for the upcoming holiday weekend.
