Keith and Caitlinn had a wonderful morning exploring some local trout water!
June has been extremely dry and unseasonably hot, but the fishing has remained outstanding! While hatches are starting to thin out for the summer, trout are still actively working midges and caddis as well as the odd stonefly and lingering sulphur or drake. Most of our trips have been full days in Central PA and the action has been nothing short of spectacular! Multiple outings are ending up in the trifecta, with a brook, brown, and rainbow all landed in the same day.
One thing anglers should start to look for is the rising water temperatures. Once the water gets above 65 degrees consistently the trout can become easily stressed by the fight of being hooked. Any caught fish should be handled with extreme care and if the water warms too much anglers should consider heading somewhere else to find cooler conditions. Rain this week should help give the trout a break and prolong this peak season!
John had some tough water conditions on his trip but we caught multiple nice browns like this one!
Some hot flies on recent trips include:
Micro Mayfly (Olive)
Copper Zebra Midge
Pumpkin Pie Perdigon
Olive Chubby Chernobyl
Nick ended the day on this nice brown, capping off a great trip!
