At the time this update is filed, Thursday, 23 October 2014, Penn's Creek has
good flow, and it is clear. Fishing on Penn's Creek has picked up since the
rainfall last week, with the fish responding to both nymphs and streamers. It's
amazing what a decent amount of water will do!
On the surface look for
#20 BWOs, #14-16 Tan Caddis, and #12 Slate Drakes to pull the fish to the
surface for the next week or two. Those hatches will probably conclude by the
beginning of November, making it even more important to fish under the surface.
Stone fly nymphs, bead head Green Weenies, and bead head Pheasant Tails are all
flies that should take fish throughout the fall and winter. A deeply drifted
streamer can provide a nice change of pace when nymphing action is slow.
