Wow, looks like the forcast changed significantly. They were calling for low of 28 on Sunday (I think).

Chagrin river looked to be in pretty good shape when I drive over it last night, but the PA Tribs were still way low as of yesterday.

We'll see.

I still haven't bought my PA license. I guess I will have to do that, today.

May have to buy an Ohesian license, too.

Meeting at Folley's End Campground Pavilion between 7 and 7:30 Saturday AM.

Creeks are low, but rain is coming. Bring your raingear.

Most of the rain hit from Northeast, PA into NY.

mid to upper 20-Mile fished good early and Chautauqua has about 18" vis. and just starting to drop.

Alby, you should have stayed one more day.

Water came up a little bit on Elk, but still very low. Fish started moving. We never did make it to our intended spot.

A lot of fish caught on bait, but I managed to land 2 and lost a third on flies. We never moved more than a couple hundred feet. Called it quits a little after 2. Had to head home for farm stuff.

Thanks to everyone at the Jam for putting up with Moose and I and shepherding the two octogenarians around. Loads of laughs !! The Avonia was a good spot for meet and greet. Thanks Norm for your help after my Back layout on Elk. Good to see Albatross and Farmer Dave continue to catch fish in less than ideal conditions. They fit the 10% that catch fish while some of us fill the 90% category.
Moose and I left Pa. and went to NY. Much better conditions there. Lots of nice water in Chautauqua Creek and more fish. If you get a chance that's the place to go rather than Cattaragus Creek. IMO> Seems like little pressure and good access points. Saw a guy centerpinning catch 5 nice steelies, he kept 3 . Probably in the 20 inc plus range. The state has access areas:
http://www.dec.ny.gov/docs/fish_marine_pdf/chautauquacreek.pdf
that are user friendly.
We finished the trip fishing for browns in Johnson Creek. Load of salmon and some scattered browns following them. Put a hook in a nice brown. He rolled once giving me a good show of his colored up body and was gone. Small egg pattern hooks are tough to get to hold on in bigger fish.Foul hooked a salmon and was glad that it pulled out. Good few days with Moose .
Once again thanks to all the Pa. FF brothers. GG

Good to see you and Moose and all. I caught fish, but am not a part of the 10% elite.
