Home > Stream Reports > Penns Creek Stream Report

My weekly excursion to Penn's Creek focused on the Glen Iron area. Yesterday afternoon, 18 May, was cloudy and cool, and I thought I might see a few Green Drakes. I was disappointed initially by the almost total lack of insects. However, the first clue to what was actually happening was the sound of a heavily feeding fish. Two nice trout, one about a foot and another considerably better, were slamming Green Drake duns as they drifted by. There were only a few hatching, but the trout seemed to find each one. Only two made it off the surface as I watched.

Since there were no Coffinflies in the riparian vegetation, it appears the Shadflies (central PA for Green Drake dun) have just started. The warm-up forecast for early next week should really stimulate the hatch. Penn's Creek is at excellent levels--enough flow to keep the fish from being spooky and low enough to prevent wading from being a challenge.
