Foxy .. 70 degrees is the tipping point, no?

Also, with the weather we have had right now it is fairly safe all day or should it be early AM & Late PM for trout

//Per HA .. next gadget I get is a thermometer


Yes 70 is definitely the top. I prefer to only fish early mornings this time of year but early evening could be okay too, we just stay out of the middle of the day. Yes, thermometer is a must in June thru September.

Fox, not sure what you mean, things are a little foggy........

Joy has mentioned doing a picnic down at the Little Lehigh sometime, so I'll run this by her and see how she feels about coming down early in the am. Might be nice to have this as a family event.
If we do, I have a portable gas grill that is fair sized and a canopy that we can bring down. We can go the route of bring your meat and grill when you want or we can chip in for burgers and dogs.

What time would you want to start fishing? Due to the 90 minute drive down, that could be the sticking point for having Joy with me. (She's not as fond of waking early as I am)

Looks like the 21st is a no-go for us. I have tickets to go see Steve Chapin and the other members of Harry Chapin's band at Droflinger that night.

The 14th is open as far as I know.

Yeah .. think Ill head to Dicks in the next few and pick one up.

I read a few threads that certain types of streams stay much cooler than others in the hazy, hot days of summer and are fishable all day

What's the deal with that?

Within an hr of Philly, any direction .. what trout creeks/streams stay the coolest?

Wow, not much within an hour of Philly. Mostly Limestone streams and small mountain streams hold a good temp. We'll talk more at Fish & Chips.

Dave, you know me, nothing has to be set in stone. I have no problem making it a family thing. I actually think that might be a great idea. I'm going to get there around 5:30 to fish but no one has to be as nutty as me. We can make a day of it, people come and go as they please. I think we have one guy bring burgers and another guy dogs, etc. Wives and kids optional but MORE than welcome.

Tricos will be prime those weekends, and the spinners will fall about 8:00am. Depending on the air temps, they will be done by 10:00 or so. Then terrestials and maybe BWO and caddis will produce. Midges always seem to be around, but the trouts will key on the more delicious bugs if they are hatching (or falling).

The Lil Lehi in the Heritage area stays cool, even during hot spells, since it gets a lot of cool springs feeding it. You can ffish all day, though the trouts may not be active when the bugs are laying low.

Cathy, always a good time and the 'old timers' really help out us newbies. Hope I can make this one but I won't know until a date is firmed up and we get closer

Much to the chagrin of my buddy JT, it's looking like July 14th is going to be the date.

Ed (aka Heritic-Angler) has not chimed in here. In most cases one would think no news is good news but in Ed's cases he's probably preparing a soliloquy that will tear me up!

Oh Ed where is thee????????????????????????
