Home > Stream Reports > Penns Creek Stream Report

I stopped at Penn's Creek Wednesday afternoon about 2 PM. There were a few small fish rising here and there, but I would not have bothered with any that I saw at the surface. There have been March Browns hatching as far up as Coburn, at least a week early by any reasonable standard. Since this big mayfly hatches sporadically throughout the day, a large matching dry fished along the edges can produce good fish. Even more consistent is working a March Brown Nymph, Bead Head Walt's Worm or Perla Stone through the pockets.

Penn's Creek is fairly low for late April. After last year's hot summer and drought I'd like to see some heavy, soaking rain, even if we do lose a few days fishing.
