Penn's Creek Fishing Report: 4-28-12

Day:2 We got on the water around 10:30am. We decided bike down and fish the "Croaker Hole." The weather was mostly cloudy and cold, I don't think it got out of the 40's. The water temperature was 49 degrees at 10:30 in the morning. We started out nymphing with limited success. I picked up a few on a #12 Green Copper John. At about 2:30pm we started to pick a few more fish up on nymph's. We landed about 10 fish on #12 Green Copper John's, #10 Black Hare's Ear's, and #16 Pheasant Tail's. By 3pm there was a blanket Sulphur Hatch. The only fish taking them were small mouth bass in the section we were fishing. A few sporadic trout rises but nothing to brag about. Throw in March Browns, Grey Foxes, Craneflies and Caddis to the mix and you have yourself a typical Penn's Creek frenzy. The only thing missing was the fish eating them.

We walked up to the Broadwaters to see if anything was rising there, a few heads were eating Sulphur Dun's on the bank and my brother and I landed a few. We tied on a Sulphur Spinner toward dark and had some modest luck with limited risers. Overall the day was a very tough one to say the least. The three of us caught around 20 and at least 4 of those fish were very fat and healthy 17-18 inchers.
