Date of Update: 7/15/2018

Highlight: Heavy rains will bring the flows up and muddy the water. Best dry fly action will be early and late. Please carry a thermometer and check the water temperature before fishing to decrease stress on fish

Stream Level: Penn's gauge is running 190 cfs, 150 cfs is the average.

Water Temp: mid 60's

Clarity: Clearing but slightly off color

Fishing Overview: Nymphing has been productive, early morning and evenings will be your best bet on the sunny days.

Specifics and Tips: Keep an eye out for fish actively feeding on top, nymphing should be productive the rest of the day. Warmer weather will start to bring out terrestrials

Conservation Note: ANGLERS VISITING OUR AREA: Specifically those of you who just fished the Delaware River (or other streams in the NY Catskill Region), the Farmington in Connecticut, or Maryland's Gunpowder River, Please clean your boots and waders with a diluted bleach solution OR hot water(must be over 140 degrees f) and laundry detergent - It must soak for at least 30 minutes to be effective. DIDYMO has been identified in these watersheds. Another option is to purchase a second pair of boots and waders to wear only in infected waters. It's the only sure way not to spread DIDYMO. Please be responsible - Don't spread DIDYMO TO Central Pennsylvania!
