Penns Creek: Fishing Report 4-06-2010







My brother and I headed up to Penns Creek in the trophy trout area Tuesday in hopes of running into a few fish. Water level was at 600 cfs with stream temperatures in the morning around 52 degrees. The water had the famous green tint too it and was very fishable. I had 3 fish on but never brought any to the net. The usual arsenal of nymphs picked these fish up, big stonefly nymphs with a caddis larvae rig. My brother hooked into 3 fish as well, got 1 on a big wooly bugger and the others on stonefly nymphs. The best part of the day was having the water all to ourselves in the solitude of the mountains, truly the best aspect of fishing Penns Creek. As far as bugs go we saw a few Hendricksons and Quill Gordons with a splash of Brown Caddis thrown in, nothing too heavy.
