Home > Stream Reports > Penns Creek Stream Report


Penn's Creek was clear and almost low when I saw it near Coburn Wednesday afternoon, 11 June. The stream seemed to be almost devoid of insect life. Not even a stray Coffinfly was to be seen. Even though the drakes, March Browns, and Sulphurs are done, there are still many hatches to look forward to on Penn's Creek this season. Mornings see emergences of late season Blue Quills (Paradleptophlebia) and big BWOs (Drunella). Slate Drakes (Isonychia) occur in the evenings for the most part, but hatches on cool, drizzly afternoons can be oustanding. Best of all Penn's Creek is still running cool enough to allow for good water temperatures. And nymphing, with Isonychia and stonefly nymphs and wet black ants, is good as long as the water stays cool.
