PA Fly Fish peeps,

I am "new" to fly fishing (been at it for 2 years) and only just recently fished Valley Creek (talk about spooky fish!).

I would like to see if I can make the jam this weekend (Sunday, right?). I have been using bootfoot hip waders for all of my fly fishing excursions. Would these be OK in the LL? I've obviously never fished the LL (or a trico hatch) so I might need some help.

Thanks, peeps!

Joe

I wet waded it last sunday. If the cold water doesn't bother you, do that.

I have to be in Dickson City Saturday a.m. to pop in to a TU regional meeting since I said, as PA Trout president, I'd make it a point to visit all of the regions. From there it is back to Oriole to pick up my better half and head south to Quakertown.

I figure I'm looking at up to 8 hrs. of driving on Saturday just so I can be at Tricky Summit...ah, I mean, Trekke Summit...no, that's not right.

TRICO SUMMIT! Third time's always a charm

Let's all plan to have fun!!

LittleLehigh, I'll be asking to look at your Paralep nymph.

BTW, for those who have labeled themselves new to ff'ing, we're all "new" each day we venture out onto the stream. Those live critters we know as trout make sure of that. And, at times, those most experienced are most humbled. Been there, done that and have a closet full of t-shirts!!

LOL. Great thought. When you're a noobie, your expectations are low and any success at all is celebrated. After a lot of time on the water and some success, you begin to think you've just about mastered the game. Sure enough, on the next outting, the fish pitch a no-hitter against you, and end up back at the batting cage trying to figure things out. Such is FF.

Thinking "I haven't been skunked in a while" is like yelling "anything but a 7" in the middle of a long roll at that craps table.

weather.com has scattered thunderstorms. That describes pretty much every summer day. Unless it's going to be sustained rain, I'm still in.

The latest forcast I saw was for PM t-storms. In the afternoon, unless the roof leaks in the bar, I don't think we'll get wet.

I'm bringing some fly-tying materials and I may tie if the weather is o.k. but the fishing isn't. I'm on regardless!

Just checked weather.com. The forecast for today looks a lot worse than it did yesterday. I'm out as well.

Yeah, I packed up and left my house about 6am. I made it as far as the WaWa to gas up and the road was flooded, so I truned around. According to the NWS, Chester County got 2" of rain already, and there's a flash flood warning this morning for the entire area including the Lehigh Valley.





That really sucks! Maybe we can try it again soon.
