Fly Fishing

Fly Tying

Home > Stream Reports > Penns Creek Stream Report


I saw Penn's Creek near Coburn on Wednesday, 16 April, just after noon. Considering all the rain over the last week, Penn's Creek was in good shape-slightly murky (about 20" of visibility) and full of water. It looked ideal to fish large nymphs. I saw no sign of Grannom caddis, despite reports that they had begun. I would expect them any day and would have the matching patterns in my fly collection. Until they do emerge, stone nymphs and large bead heads would be my choice.
